    Now i have a question. I searched the forum for a proper section to post this but couldnt find. I have a horn set from our old Contessa which sounds like the Vento,Skoda horns. I like that sound very much. The horn is in very good condition. When I took it to TASS they say that they cant fix it in my car. Number of reasons.... Warranty will be void, no place to fix the horn, no provision ....need to cut wire etc etc.....I really dont understand their logic. I cant even add/fix something of my choice to my car? Please guys help me....anyone fixed a horn or any electrical item to their cars? Mine is a Linea MJD Emo Pack. Have taken 4 years plus extended warranty also. :( I want to fix this horn and if possible one roots horn.... i need advices.....

    ^^Do not worry, horn can be fixed & there is sufficient space to fit.

    Even i have Roots(Skoda type) in my Punto. Did fit the horn myself & no wires was cut.
    There is a socket type of pins(female) for OEM horn. If possible will get the pics of DIY tomorrow.

    Hi ,

    I am also looking for better horns , having more bolder noise [as in skodas , vws etc.] than the present shrill noise ..
    I was shown a variety of horns , so please do clarify the model of the Roots horn to be procured . Range starting from Rs.150 - ....... [though didnt ask abt the expensive one]
    Current rating of the particular Roots horn is ?? The present horn rating is 15Amps .

    Do give the DIY pics , since the workshop fellows mentioned about removing the front bumpers to remove the horn ...

    @Dilip: Go for Stebel Nautilus if you can find one. But be warned that it won't last more than a year. I have had a couple gone kaput, now waiting to put the third one.

    Horn is always a fancy item in the car... each car sounds different and i did test it in the workshop... i will like to change for a Hella Red Grill...its sharp sounding horn and I love it...but it will need some form of over load protector (relay) without which battery will go dead....

    Yes as per TASS need to remove bumper, but had a tough time removing the upper grill screw(same for FIAT logo) locked to a thin bracket connected to bumper.
