Is the procedure similar for the 96+ steering wheels? My volume button doesn't have the click anymore.

By the way, if anyone'* interested, I recently had to replace some defective radio control switches on my '92 SSE */c, and to my surprise, the pins were solid plastic rather than the rubber pins that turned to goo on my '93 SSEi. I wasn't previously aware that GM had made rubber versions and plastic versions - my vote is for the plastic versions because they'll never turn to goo due to heat or age.

the pins that came out of my original buttones (92 SSEi) where plastic, although they still had slight (almost un-noticeable) mushrooming on the ends of the ones that get pushed the most
