View Full Version : Loud Horns

01-02-2003, 01:08 AM
I exchanged the factoy horns (Hi/Lo) for a custom set (Hi/Lo) from Pep Boys. Tired of getting dissed on the road? Do this.

The horns sound like your nerighbors Expedition.

I have more pics if interested. Front bumper removal, wiring, etc.

I want my car to sound like a train:D

I think a nice set of air horns would be perfect.

my horn is so damn loud already --- wouldnt want a louder one...

Ya ever get into a good "clean out the closet mode" and do something stupid... like My friend years ago gave me a horn like your picture is of... and I've had it around for years, but never felt the need to put a louder horn on my saturn... of course now that might be useful on my 02 Si... too bad it's already in the landfill :-( Damn it... Sometimes a clean room is less efficient than the "throw your stuff in little piles method"... Bill

Nice Honkers.

Wow you took your bumper off. I just squeezed my hands in there. then wired from undernieth the bumper.
I did a similer install with a set of FIAAM high way blasters, and they are nice, but I am ready to go to a set of three tone air horns.
Nice install. you should paint your head lights while your bumper is off;)

Thanks for the comlpiments on the FIAMM Highway Blasters (you called it greenguy). I wanted some air horns, but couldn't resist the absolute ease of installation with deez (Cake!).

To date I have avoided two sideswipes (SUV & Full size Truck coming over into the lane I was driving in), blasted the SHI* out of them with the horns, and they got their ass back in their lane QUICK:eek:

I have blasted 1 person that wouldn't let me merge (in 5 MPH traffic) onto the FWY??? The passenger turned over to look at the driver after I gave them a "toot":p

When people here them they think it's a truck.

When I find myself in the midst of a group of trucks, SUVs, and mini-vans, I keep a thumb over the horn button just waiting to BAAAAAAAAAA;) loud horns = saved ass and many laughs

Easy to remove the front bumper once all of the attachment "snap pins" and screws are removed. Once the bumper is off (have to yank it from each side), just unbolt the factory horns mount the aftermarkets horn using same location and fasten the ground wire (the wire looped back to the bolt in the pic) to the mounting location on the horn. Plug in the remaining wire to the horn and that is it. You can do this without taking off the bumper, it'll be a little tight though.

Point them down so water doesn't settle inside.

The horns sound exactly like a full size truck (more so Chevy than Ford after hearing "the public" arm their alarms in various parking lots).

pleasepleaseplease someone post a step by step with pictures. me love you long time.

I will (slowly) post what I did.

This is what the factory installed hornS (1 low tone 1 high tone = 2) look like. Deez are what you want to remove.

These are a two (+ & -) contact type horn (the factory horns have only one contact.) One of the contacts goes directly to the mounting point as a ground. It doesn't matter which one you choose to ground. There are wires crimped with all that you will need.

Remove these clips on top (pointing finger) and on bottom (no good pic). They look exactly alike top & bottom. There are also two screws (one on each side) near the rear of the bumper (pics later). Don't remove the clips under the hood above the grill (unless you want to remove the grill ONLY).

02-06-2003, 10:59 PM
The screws on each side are near here on each side (passenger side shown). I pulled extra clips out to peel back my fender liners. It made things a bit easier.

02-06-2003, 11:07 PM
Once you have all of the clips/screws (four on top six I think on the bottom + 2 screws) out, you'll be able to YANK the bumper off. You really do have to give it a good pull to the side & toward the front of the car. Pop out the bumper marker lights before you yank it out see next pic.

See this, pull the light housing out from the wide side (toward the back) and slide it out. It may require you to "flex" the cut out for the light housing. Disconnect the wire from the housing once it's free.

02-06-2003, 11:23 PM
This is the bumper without the light. Note the "wide" side. Pull this out first. Use your fingers.

02-06-2003, 11:29 PM
Look at this black thing with the two screws. This is the part that grabs the bumper right below the fender. This is what you're trying to "free" the bumper from. The bumper will fall to the floor if you're solo. So spread out a sheet or something. BTW these are on each side. You will have to YANK each side.

02-06-2003, 11:35 PM
The is where the previous pic "holds" the bumper. Note one of two screw holes on the left/toward the back.

02-06-2003, 11:42 PM
Take the factory horns off. Unscrew them from the straight bracket mount. Leave the straight bracket mount on the frame of the car. You will use them for the new horns. Cut the wire going to them like so. Just in case you want to reinstall them when you trade in the car in three years.

See that duct tape. The nipples on the foam frame cover broke off when my bumper fell to the ground. I had to do this in order for it to stay while I installed the bumper. Two people will prevent this from happening.

02-06-2003, 11:51 PM
Any questions?

02-06-2003, 11:56 PM
Top view. See the straight bracket in this pic?

02-06-2003, 11:58 PM
