Tech413 :

Hello my name is Rob.

Tech413 :

It is very simple to replace the horn on this vehicle.

Customer:

Do tell!

Customer:

Also Rob, I'm about to pack up my laptop & throw it in the car & then travel 5 hours for a week-long vacation (wherein I'd hoped to do horn replace-project)... If it's very simple, can you reply/ instruct me on this horn deal by e-mail?? I will be off-line soon... Thanks!

Tech413 :

Sorry apparently we had some type of error.

Tech413 :

There is a plastic lining inside the left front tires wheel well

Tech413 :

I will reply here and that should generate an e-mail to you.

Customer:

Huhh?? What, not so simple?? Talk to me, man..

Tech413 :

This plastic lining is held in by plastic clips. Remove the clips towards the front of the car the horn is just behind the left front fender at the front.

Tech413 :

To reomve the clips just pry out the centers with a small screwdriver. If you come acrossed a stuborn one just tap it with the butt end of the screwdriver to release the dirt.

Tech413 :

The horn is secured with a 12mm bolt. So the only tools you need will be a 12mm wrench and a small flat screwdriver. And a new horn.

Customer:

And then?? Is there anything I should know about fuse location and if I should disconnect first?? Any wiring complications or is it pretty straight-forward? Thanks also for info thus far!

Tech413 :

If you are sure it is the horn. There is nothing else you need to do.

Tech413 :

The horn has one bolt and one connector. Use your thumb to release the connector before you remove the horn. That way you wont damage the harness.

Tech413 :

There is only one fuse. That is fuse number seven in the underhood fuse box.

Tech413 :

Is the there a red SRS light illuminated on the gauge cluster?
