Universal kit includes two separate horns, one low tone and one high tone. These universal replacement horns utilize a spade style connector - your car may require modification of the horn connectors to work with this horn set.
Your car horn is the only warning signal another driver will hear, besides your cries of protest, before a potential accident. So, it helps to have an operable horn that is loud enough and audible over common street noises. Horns will fade in sound over time and may be damaged by an accident or electrical failures in the car. If you find it necessary to replace your horn, this is a DIY project that someone with basic car knowledge can accomplish in an afternoon.
Replacing the horns on the Volvo C30 is relatively easy and should take no more than an hour to perform. Accessing the horns requires you to remove the front bumper cover. See our article on Front Bumper Cover Removal for more information.
I noticed the horn in my 2003 Boxster S sounded a little funny lately. When I brought it in for an oil change and brake fluid flush, the dealer told me the high tone horn is out. He also told me a new horn was $190 plus tax and labor. My initial look for the horn found only the alarm horn near the battery, not the high and low tone horns. I've searched this forum and the internet and haven't found any how-to articles on where the horn is or how to replace it. I did see a couple of references to removing the front bumper cover to replace the horns.
Does the front bumper cover really need to be removed to replace the horns?
If so, is that a difficult job?
Are there any how-to articles anyone can point me to on removing and replacing the front bumper cover and/or replacing the horns?
Sorry if this has been covered already. I looked but couldn't find any detailed instructions. Thanks in advance.
