Elf horn button

Post  whitebuffalo on Mon Jan 17, 2011 8:10 am

I bought a Les Leston steering wheel for my Elf and it takes the same horn push as the factory type steering wheel. Hope someone out there in Elf/Hornet world has a spare one.

I've got the original wheel off my Elf, but it just has a center emblem, no horn button, since that's on the turn signal stalk.

Like me, you could buy a new one from Mini Spares. Although the button hole is slightly larger than the original a bit of work has made Riley badge from my old one fit.

They sell it with an Austin badge:

Or without the badge if you have an old one you want to keep:

Sadly they don't have a Riley badged version.

I have one of the Riley Elf horn button centers if you are interested. The shipping may be prohibitive but let me know.

Keep an eye on Ebay-UK as they show up there from time to time. That's where I got mine and used it before I finally got a proper Mk III center which is not a horn button.

Thanks for the responses. I was fortunate enough to find a horn button from my Mini club member and was able to fit my Riley badge in it. Will take some photos of the finished product once the paint dries.

Ok, here is the final product. I repainted the horn button in matte black.
