Question 65 horn button

Does anyone have an exploded view of a 1965 horn button and its parts?

I can make the horn honk with a screwdriver making the contact, but the horn ring, for some reason, cannot make the connection. I'm hoping someone can show me how the pieces are supposed to go back in in case I put them back incorrectly. (and also let me know if I'm missing a part.)

Thanks in advance.

Could be missing the spring that maintains the contact. I have frequently seen that, as it is a light spring made of fine wire that turns invisible when removed from the steering column.

Update:

I took everything apart again and compared my parts with theses images:
1964 Chevelle horn assembly in steering column help! - Chevelle Tech

(they steering wheel is different, but the parts are pretty much duplicate to the ones I have.)

THOROUGHLY cleaned and shined up both sides of the large metal disc AND shined up the metal hub of the steering wheel, and then... IT WORKED!
