    I’m guessing this is the type of steering wheel you have and it’s the same thing as mentioned above, just pull up on it.

    No, I have just the old two spoke steering wheel with the rectangular horn button with the GMC logo on it. I’m guessing it just pops out but I want to make sure I don’t ruin the catch mechanism.
    Thanks,
    Dennis

    Different style, but same concept. The center section pops out. Sitting in at the drivers seat pull the horn button towards you. A small plastic pry tool may help. Its held in place by spring clips, not sure if they are plastic or metal on your steering wheel. On the wheel posted earlier they are metal so they can take a little prying.
