Failed bushings on the airbag frame

My horn is sounding with just a slight touch on the steering wheel and even when I don't touch it and the car is parked. A past thread said to search for "failed bushings on the airbag frame" in order to resolve this issue but I can't find any results.

Does anyone know how to fix a hyper sensitive horn?

there are 4 bushings, one in each corner.
the horn works by shorting out the inner section with the frame which is isolated
by 4 rubber bushings. they wear out.

I rigged some springs to get the bushing effect. PITA, took several tries, but it worked.

I'm not sure if you can source replacements or have it refurbished.
