I have finally experienced the dreaded broken plastic mounting ring. Being lazy and not wanting to look for my spare I used the magic 5 minute epoxy.

The broken half of the ring is now bonded to the column. Removing the mount screw allows removal of the switch assembly.

5 minute epoxy is heat sensitive so it can easily removed with a heat gun and soft enough when set to carve with a utility knife or chisel.

The steering wheel is back in place and she's ready for next Saturday's cars 'n coffee.
