The "clockspring" is several wires wound to look like a Clock's Spring.
You have probably seen "ribbon" wires, a flat wire with several conductors inside.
Clockspring is a ribbon wire but wound up like a spring.
It allows you to turn the steering wheel while horn, airbag and cruise stay connected.
So only 1 wire/conductor, out of the 6, in the clockspring cable might be broken, so horn working doesn't mean clockspring is OK.
You will probably need to pull the steering wheel in any case, to have a look, could just be airbag wire broke and can be soldered
Remember to unhook battery and wait 20-30minutes before removing an airbag, they store a charge so can deploy if you don't let them drain.
And an airbag going off when you have a tool in your hand can ruin your whole day, or the rest of your soon to be short life.
