I've tried to answer my own question for a couple weeks, but I'm getting impatient and not having a steering wheel is getting real old.

When I bought my Monte Carlo (83) the steering wheel had two wires sticking straight out from the horn button. I was told I could just reconnect them, ok no big deal. Problem is I'm either having a backasswards 2 weeks or somethings different about this horn button... From what I can tell I THINK the wires are supposed to come out from the column and attach to the wheel/button, not out from the button???? Input much appreciated.

your white wire goes to one of the bolts inside to the adapter for a ground. the yellow should have a spring and a plastic tube with a small ear on it that goes into a hole through the adaptor and into the column. the plastic tub pushes in and turns to hold that flat rivet on the end to the horn clockspring look up dorman 49319. I cant get the picture to attach. they probably slid off the wire while unhooked from horn button

Thank y'all so much. At least now I know I'm legitimately missing pieces and this gives me a place to start. Definitely would like to see the picture if it uplands though.

Dammit. That small plastic piece is broken, and jagged kinda poking through the column. Hmmm
