Thanks dealer

I had my airbag recall done yesterday.

I'm out for the day running errands... and the horn starts honking on its own? Wtf!

Seems like it happens when I push down on the wheel at certain angles.

Other times it's kind of random. Let's hope it doesn't honk at the wrong person

I changed my steering wheel before so I'll pop it open when I get home.

There was a loose spring in there I suspect was completing the circuit on the horn contacts. I guess it was rolling around that explains the randomness of it

I wouldn't touch it. Take it back to them; it's their responsibility to fix it. If you mess with it and can't fix it, they might be able to wash their hands of it.

I couldn't be bothered to bring it in again and I figured only so many things can go wrong with an airbag replacement, if anything I'd be able to put it back and say I hadn't touched it.

I will however let them know they ****ed things up though, and I know they care oh so much about what BMWNA thinks.
