Does anybody know how I might repair the three horn buttons on the steering wheel of my 1982 Spider, a Holloboro steering wheel. The heart of the wheel, where the three button spokes are attached and where the electrical switches are, seems to be plastic (polypropylene?) and is currently cracked in a number of places. The wheel is a very nice one, I would very much like to save it. Thanks!

Alfa parts vendors sell the three, off-white plastic, oblong insulators that isolate the horn pushes from the spokes. Classic Alfa sells them as p/n MI 021. See: MI021 SET HORN PUSH SURROUNDS - 57mm LONG

Are you sure the brand of your wheel isn't "Hellebore", named after Eurasian genus Helleborus consists of approximately 20 species of herbaceous or evergreen perennial flowering plants in the family Ranunculaceae? You know, these things:

But do you know why they named it after a plant?

hellebore in greek mythology was a cure for madness.
alfa on the other hand is more like the cause of madness:)

Hi Klig. If your steering wheel is a Hellebore, as is likely, you should be able the edit correct your title (look top right of the post 3 dots) and as I am confused as to what is broken some pictures may help your quest.

A photo pr two would go a long way here. Seems like there is some confusion on what parts you are looking for.
