I30 horn
« November 30, 2018, 06:05:50 »
Hi All

How hard is it to replace I30 horn with something better?  I had the need to use the horn the other day and was surprise at how tiny that sound.

Has anyone upgrade their horn?

I agree. Mine sounds terribly puny. I might be interested in changing it out. I don't expect it will be very difficult: just locate it and reconnect the 12V line to a new horn.

Like most modern cars the Horn sounds more like a roadrunner "meep meep" so much so that people don't even acknowledge you  :-[

The i40 has a much better horn, perhaps give one a beep and see if it meets your needs.

I would think they would be cheap at the wreckers.

Youíll probably find that horn will sound similar to what you already have :undecided: itís definitely not a Klaxon trumpet horn though :whistler:

Hunt around for an old 60 's Ford or Holden one.

Just meant to show how cheap an option you can get without going to the wreckers. Here's a search showing a range of them:
