Want to confirm if this item is from the horn ring or in that section of the car. It fell out during the disassembly.

With no sense of scale- I'd guess if it's sitting on a hand towel then it's a horn wire anchor plate. It should have been held with a screw.

Looks like the plate the turn signal switch set screw threads in to, holds the switch in place on the steering column tube.
