Those instructions are helpful, but maybe they should also contain a strong warning about the white nylon spring-loaded horn wire connector retainer and how delicate it is. Trust me, it'* broken on both of my bonnies, and it'* almost like it'* boobytrapped to break with little effort. Maybe it'* because the nylon becomes brittle as it ages. In my 2 experiences with these, finding and implementing a fix for the broken spring-loaded horn wire connector retainer has been by far the most difficult part of the job! Replacing the switches and/or repairing the pegs is trivial compared to this.

Also, my suggestion to use small sections of round toothpicks instead of the flimsy rubber pegs is working perfectly for me, and it doesn't require the cost of any epoxy or time to wait for it to cure.

Just a suggestion.
Thanks.
