Horn doesnt stop Honkin...

Help.. Just started today.. I start my beloved boxster and the horn starts honkin on and off. I just barely tap on the steering wheel and the horn sounds off. Also when I press on the brakes or drive on any small potholes, the horn goes off. So last night after I parked it in the garage with the ignition off and key in hand, it started honkin waking up the neighborhood. ??Is the horn accessible to cut a power wire off?? I do plan on taking it to the shop, but not by getting the brid on every intersection...

Thanks.

Pull fuse B3. Should cut power to horns. Use finger until you repair horns!

quite common occurrence. The bushings in the horn frame have weakened and need repairing.. there are a few threads about that here and a really good one over on Rentech.com, I'll try to find it and post a link.

Here ya go, I think you'll have to register on renntech to see it but it is a good thread:
