Replacing the factory horn with Air Horns


Recommended Posts

Well they are finally in, I must be a slow worker, either that or afraid to damage something because this sure took awhile!

After removing both front wheels, the front inner wheel well liners, both side markers and the front bumper cover then I could start the task of installing the air horns. There is lots of room behind the impact beam, even found a threaded location to mount the bracket for the horn.

Instead of cutting the original wires I used them to trigger a relay that supplied power directly from the battery. I know it may not have been necessary but other then the extra work of running the wires, it will make it easier to return the vehicle to stock.

They sound is great, much louder then stock, really gets their attention now... (you know them, members of the anti-destination league about to cut you off or change lanes without looking! :o )

Is that a Stobel Nautilus?

I had my clutch replaced 6 weeks ago at an independent shop owned by Marvin. Marvin use to work at 2 local dealerships before going independent. Marvin inspects the cars he works on. One of the things he checks out is the operation of the horn. He asked me why my horn was so loud....

Good eye Tool Pants!, yes it is a Stobel Nautilus, and yes it is LOUD.

Good thing too, I had to warn a young lady on the way to work today that cutting across 3 lanes to cut me off wasn't appreciated... I think she heard me! :D

I'd love to toss a stebel nautilus into my car.

If you try to set the alarm and a door is open, it normally barely pulses the horn. How's it sound with the stebel?

I see that we have the same car, I will have to try the process you just described, but AFAIK the audible beep and alarm horn is separate from the horn activated by the button on the sterring wheel, there is a horn mounted to the driver's side of the battery under the plastic cowl.

The car horn and alarm horn are two different horns.
