HELP! Need directions for high/low tone horn replacement instructions

Dear enthusiats,

I need help with replacing my high/low tone horns that has gone bad. So I did the whole airbag retaining frame replacement (because at some point, the horn was going off on its own), found that the fuse B3 was blown, replaced that and horn still doesn't work. I am assuming that the relay works because a bad horn in a common thing.

I scoured the forum and the only thing I found was someone saying that the bad horn replacement was an easy DIY.

Soooo, could someone please point me to some steps, pics etc. for this.

Thanks in advance.

Bumper Cover Removal

You are correct, a bad horn is a common thing. However, don't assume relay is working. You should hear it click when you press on the airbag in the steering wheel. The relay is located in the panel in footwell just above fuse panel.

Replacing the horns themselves is very straight forward AFTER you remove the front bumper cover (which takes ~ 20min). You'll see them plain as day once the cover is off. While you have the bumper cover off, you should clean out your radiators too

Here's a thread on how to remove front bumper cover

Good luck

PS- Horn Relay is plug 10

I now there is at least one thread on adding an air horn with detailed instructions.
