I hope the next person who does the panel removals will take some nice step-by-step photos and post a DIY.
Awesome, thanksOK here is a real writeup. Don't get me wrong, the first walk through I thought this going to be cake. But the directions left a lot of detail which hurts when you do not know what the heck you are doing.
Sorry in the midst of reinstalling the horn I was in a hurry to get my car back up and running. I might remove the hood pieces tomorrow or sometime this weekend.If not I can always take a picture of from the grill. It is pretty flushed so it might be hard to even make out... I'll update this tomorrow morning.Oh, by the way, any pics of the new horn installed?
I kicked around all the other suggestions and methods and came up with what I did. Other than one other place, which would have been so cool but a much harder install, I elected to put it there.I knew if I waited long enough someone would find the easy road. FYI I used bracket to mount scangauge same place as yours I like it their. I will mount horn this afternoon.
HOLY JUMPIN' Jahassifers!!! Man you really like to do things the hard way!
Here is a simple text explanation of how to do this simple job......
Break left front wheel lugs loose but don't remove....
Jack car on left front jacking pad high enough to install safety jack stand.
Remove 3 plastic expansion retainers from left front splash shield...fold back front part of splash shield to gain access to horn mount bolt right there in your face...unplug the two wires to the horn, remove the bolt and then the horn out thru opening. Install original mounting bar onto new horn and bolt right back into same place.
Hook up wires...Brown is NEGATIVE, Blue is POSITIVE.
Push back splash shield and reinstall expansion retainers. JOB DONE
Total time including all the periferal stuff....about 20 min to 1/2 hour....
Just thought you would like to know you don't have to take the whole front of the car apart to do this job!
I may get one of those to r&r the original when it burns out..if I have the car that long. This one will be traded for a Smart PHEV or EV when they come out.John, Came home fron church changed and had new mini horn in 27 min. start to finish. TA DA!!!!! Thanks again for the post my next part will be the new muffler from Doug's Headers have placed my order little sports car purr is ok not into fart can sounds well past those days.
