Horn Replacement $20 drop ins from Hella

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd post it here, I bought HELLA 011225841 Black 12V BX Trumpet Horn Kit (Audi) from amazon for $20 for a pair of low/high tone horns, since my left side horn was broken.

I thought I'd give it a try for $20, since I plan to upgrade the horn sometime in the future anyway. They're direct fit, looks to be pretty much the same as what was in the car and connectors are the same.


OEM horns are 420/510 Hz while these are 400/500 Hz. I replaced both sides as a precaution. Sounds decent, pretty much the same as OEM.

how hard was it to get to the horns for replacement?  What needs to come out to get to them and swap?  Easy?  Hard?  Thanks.


Non turbo models have easy access to horn, there is a pretty good DIY already exists which I used:



2/10 on a scale of easy to hard.
