Horn activation under heavy breaking

I have notice recently that the horn has become very sensitive and the other day under heavy breaking it went off all by itself...honest I didn't touch it lol.

I remember a few years ago while test driving a 2.5 it had the same problem, so I take it, it's a common problem.

A fix would be nice.

Thanks guys.

Yes a common problem AND a common topic here on the forums...

The bushings in the horn frame have weakened and need repairing. See this very recent thread from just a couple weeks ago:
Stuck Horn

If you want to read more about it there are a few threads about that here and a really good one over on Rentech.com Horn Problem, Horn problem

other threads here on 986forum:
