    Default Pathetic Horn

    The horn on my new motor is about as much use as a fart in a trance, So where's it located & best way to get to it??

    Also while I'm at it, are there any holes behind the rear griffin badge like there is on the "B"?

    Cheers!

    There should be no holes behind the griffin (there's plenty of cars been debadged to prove, my estate included.

    I think the horn can be bit of a sod to get to, and I seem to remember someone saying its a simple job to just replace due to canbus (Green Growler from memory) but I'm sure someone will clarify that.

    Sounds like yours only has the single mono tone horn which, as you say, is as much use as a fart in a trance. I believe you can simply add the two twin-tone horns, one either side. They came standard on mine and they certainly get people's attention!

    I believe it's just a straight swap. Not sure if the wiring is there for the second one or if you need to get an extra loom.
