Default NEED HELP REPLACING HORN SWITCH!

My 2001 PT failed the WV state inspection today because the horn doesn't work. I found a few posts on this website that lists of what you have to do and I've messed with the steering wheel cover for almost 2 hours trying to get it off. I have been unsuccessful in removing the airbag cover (the part with the Chrysler logo) to replace the horn switch/pad. The horn itself still works because it still works when I lock the car with the key fob, so i am assuming it is something under that cover that needs replaced. (Note: A few days ago it was working but I would have to push pretty hard on the horn button for it to work and it was intermittent at best).

So if there is anyone out there that could provide detailed instructions (A video would seriously help me. I may even consider paying someone to post a clear video of how to remove the cover. It would really help me out.

Thanks Everyone!

Most likely its the clock spring that's bad, when I removed the air bag I bent the end of a 16 penny nail to use as a lever, there are 3 holes behind the airbag, insert the bent nail and slightly push back while lightly pulling on the bag cover you should hear a click each time and it comes off it takes about 30 seconds.

Could you post a photo of the 3 holes location? I pryed and pulled for 2 hours at that cover with no luck. I used 2 flat head screwdrivers as leverage.
