Trying to get to the horn button

So today at work, i walk out to find the horn going off on my f250. I open the door and mess with the horn button to get it off and than remove both my relay and fuse for the horn. How do i get to that horn button to see if thats the problem? The truck does have an airbag. Has anyone had this issue?...i dont want to put it and back together to find the horn going off in the middle of the night

Mine started going off and i had to punch it to make it stop after that it wouldnt work. I too thought it was my button so what I unhooked my batteries because i have an airbag too then pop off the plastic pieces on either side of the rear of the steering wheel. Take out the bolts (8mm i think) and pull out the whole assembly. Then you can peel back the cover that says Ford and get at the button. Hope that helped!

Still not sure i put a new button into the steering wheel and i can hear the relay clicking so i think maybe a problem in the wiring past the relay becaue the fuse also blows as soon as its put it in. So most likely a short or something but i havent had time lately to take a look.
