Alan, definately, I was considering a mod to beef it up somewhat. I was recently in Kenya and quite a few of the local minibus things flying around have airhorns on them, I did find a place selling them and was thinking about buying one, would be fantastic. Does anyone know if there are laws governing horn loudness in the UK, if not might pick one up at Xmas when I am out there.
Or does anyone know if the horn is accesible on the Civic and if it can be replaced. I might go and have a look under the bonnet later...........got me thinking now.
I have bought one of those Stebel air horns, but havn't got round to fitting it yet . Had a quick look to see how easy the job was going to be, It looks as if you have to remove the engine under tray to get at the original horns ( yes I was suprised, there are two) . Does any one know if there is a horn relay fitted as standard ? This would simplify the fitting job if there is.
I'd love to see a How To on this when you're finished mike222.
Where did you get the Stebel air horn? Were you able to test a whole bunch of them before you picked the one you have (like doorbells :lol: )!!?
I beep a driver today and also noticed that the dual horn doesn't sound right. Both horns go off but there's a deep air sound afterwards, like a back flow of air sound? A short beep is fine, but a long beep you get this sound. Why did Honda locate them at the front of the grill where the get all the rain and dirt?
The honda 'disc type' horn is much more piercing and effective in my opinion thsn the VAG/vauxhall/ford dual tone type. More girly sounding maybe, but better at penetrating windscreens and deaf OAP's hearing aids :facepalm:
Am I the only one to like the sound of the horn?Lol!Heyho,its better than the Accord I used to have,better than my friends cars,Celica,Scooby,Lexus.
My car friends all think air horns are cheesey....well if it plays a tune ahyway,lol!
