    Hey fellow TFian's, i need a lil advice. Went to my local accessories guy to fit a "skoda" type horn which i kept from my previous car into my new GP. Before he started, told me " wire katega nahi par cheelna padega" :eek:(wont cut the wires but will have to "skin" the covering of the wire)!

    Ireplied in the negative and told him that i'll get back to him. I love my old horn and really hate this new single horn fiat has started plonking in its cars!

    Pleeeeeeeeeeeese help! (Mumbai TFians, if u guys have changed horns in your GP's please let me know from where)

    Thanks a ton!
  3. i got that installed without peeling or cutting the original wiring. The guy here bought a female pin and altered it so that it fit to the original wiring. you have to speak to the mechanic about this option

    OEM horns on punto and linea are good, but unfortunately on my linea they are very bad. sometimes only one horn works after using it multiple times. also the sound is very low. got it adjust 2 times but again its not working properly.

    Finally i got a pair of Hella " Skoda type horns" for Rs. 850. dint go for roots as i already have one in my other car. so wanted something different. Roots windtone cost Rs.450 and work beautifully. i am using them since 2 years.

    i was very happy and eager to go and fit the horns myself. i read some diy tips here. but the DIY steps were for punto and opening lineas bumper/grill is very difficult and tedious.

    the upper grill is bolted to the frame and lower part of the upper grill is pasted to the bumper using 3m tape :(

    has anyone opened the linea bumper before?

    i fitted the horns. one word- awesome!! i was loving the roots windtone a lot. but these hellas are just more sweeter than roots.

    for linea i will recommend only hellas as they are small and fit in tight places.

    do not try to pull out the lineas grill. you need to open the bumper just from top to fit the horns. no need to pull out the complete bumper.

    hella horns FTW :)
    Next time, try stebel TM80 magnum.

    Good to know that you need to open just the top of the bumper - I had to remove the whole bumper to fix horns for my Punto.

    My car stock hella horns are acting funny nowadays.

    i have already blown up 2 magnums till date :) they are the best to horrify bikers and auto walas.

    but taking into consideration the way i honk they dont last more than 1 or 1.5 years.

    the stebel wont fit in linea :(

    For the last couple of days I find that the sound of my Lineas horn has changed. Any suggestions what could be the reason. The penetrating sound has disappered and it sounds peppy.

    Any suggestion to fix this is welcome.

    There is a tone setting screw behind every horn. try adjusting that. but be very careful, turn it micro mm by micro mm. if you are not able to do it ask some mechanic to do it.
