Before road rage became the rage I preferred the one finger salute.

Horns are over rated, non of my aircooled cars have them

cheers

A new horn from parts for imports is pretty cheap. Assuming it is 12 volt they have them in stock.

I rewired my horn with with a relay!

Everyone knows how much I like relays. I am with relays like David is with carburators and distributors. The Ghia has like 7 and I am not even done yet.

I love relays... Ahhhhh....

Well anyways, I am not sure you need a relay, but they are fun...

Sounds like a good tech day side project. Are the tabs bent or part missing?

Just need to be able to get a connector on there or we could solder a some new wires with male connectors.

I like to solder almost as much as I like relays!

Or you could just buy one for like 10 bucks and be done with it.

I would say get these....

Hella Supertone 12V High Tone/Low Tone Twin Horn Kit

But it might be a bit loud inside the car, i was thinking train horns would be fun (crazy loud for a tiny lil car, i think it would be funny)

Yeah if the tabs are still connected it must be something internal.

Spencer, The horn that I have , I just removed from a stock '74 Super beetle. So it should go beep-beep like you want. Razz
