IIRC, 89 is the only year the MKIII came with wheel-mounted cruise control. I modified the ring behind the steering wheel so the horn worked but it slipped out of its contacts the first time I turned the wheel. How did other 89 owners do this? Also, the turn signals don't return.

I have a possible fix for both problems, but it's kind of a pain and I thought it would be wise to ask others if they have a solution first.

Same problem

I went through this not long ago. I have no solution for the turn signal thing, but for the horn. I just spliced the 2 wires (forget the colours at the moment) but if you strip them and touch them together the horn will sound. Then I just put them to a push button beside the little plastic coin holder to the left of the wheel. I'd take a pic but digicam isn't handy.

Actually, all MK3's have the cruise on the steering wheel, just in different places.
Not all. My 90 had a big fat air bag. hah! But really, now I know. All pre-90's had wheel mounted cruise. Thanks.

I'll do the method I thought of earlier.. just a PITA. If it works the way I'm thinking it should, it will restore turn signal "bump" as well as horn function on the button. I'll take pics if it works out well.

Technically, it is ON the wheel. It's not on the column, if you turn the steering wheel, it turns, if you take the steering wheel off, it comes off. Hence, it's on the wheel, haha. It's just mounted behind where you grab the steering wheel.
