There is a single screw on the boss
Just look directly under the bottom of the M. It's there on the boss, unscrew this and hey presto, horn push in hand.

There is no M on a split screen steering wheel horn push. I use a box spanner to tighten or remove the centre nut. To avoid annoying the neighbours you should remove the fuse or disconnect the battery when removing the steering wheel.

Plain brown bakelite with a chrome ring! This one cleaned up nicely with some brasso.
