Horn hanging by thread
« on: June 15, 2013, 07:27:46 AM »
I noticed that my horn was hanging by its wires (which is better than just finding the wires!). I had read that the horn bracket was prone to fracture and sure enough mine had split across the mounting hole. This is very easy to fix. All I did was cut away more of the bracket before its final bend to leave a flat plate instead of the stock ninety degree arrangement that it started out with. I then drilled the shortened bracket to fit the engine plate stud that originally located the horn.

Of course the horn now rides side saddle instead of facing front but I reckon this is better for aerodynamics.

Definitely better for everything.
Reliability of mounting and function,  and probably better aerodynamics and better cooling to the engine too.

I too suffered the dreaded horn dangling disease. I had a Range Rover horn and bracket laying around, chop,chop on the bracket and it looks like it was made to fit there!

They'll only hear your exhaust note when they're in a position to be of little threat to you.
