    Unhappy What Car Horn to buy

    To cut a long story shot the horn on my 2008 vectra Estate 1.8 Lift is S**T. A truck nearly rerversed into me as he couldn't hear my horn.
    I think my horn is a sinlge two tone horn - is there a upgrade or direct replacement you recommend. I don't want to re-wire anything, just a replacement.

    Thanks in Advance

    I found on beside the washer bottle but cant find anything on the other side.

    The Hella ones seems to show a relay - thus requiring additional wiring.

    Same as our 55 Reg Facelift Club Hatch...only the one pathetic single tone horn...and no 2nd harness tucked away anywhere on the opposite side for a 2nd horn to be plugged into either... and there seems to be no horn relay in the engine bay Fuse/Relay chamber....

    Some guy on the forum seem to have been lucky with their cars having the 2ng loom tucked away somewhere behind/under the O/S headlamp
    - perhaps pre facelifts....

    The Haynes manual for the Pre Facelift C's makes reference to a Horn relay for twin tones in the engine bay fuse/relay chamber in the electrical schematic diagrams & a mates 53 reg Pre Facelift LS Hatch has twin tones but only the same number of relays in the engine bay fuse/relay chamber as mine..

    So for this reason I've put the twin tone upgrade in the pending tray for the time being as I'm planning to fit front foglights which I have just bought shortly...

    Cheers
