    Default Disconnecting alarm

    Saw on a thread here a few weeks ago that if you disconnect the (rather pathetic) alarm siren in the boot, the horn will sound instead.

    I was going to test this today, but couldn't get the damn connector off the unit. Couldn't really see what I was doing and didn't force it too hard as i didn't want to break it.

    Does it just pull off or are there clips?

    Thanks.

    PS: can someone please confirm that what I'm trying to do will actually work before I waste any more time!

    not forgotten but dropped down me priority list a bit lol..

    Will take some piccys tomoz of the plug... there is a little clip you have to push down at the same time as gently pulling to remove the plug.

    It can all be done one handed though
