It's easy to do. It won't be plug-n-play but you can cut the existing connectors off and solder in the new horns or use crimp connectors - just make sure you use a good crimp tool (Channel Lock, Klein, Snap-On, etc.).aaronmp2315 said:I want to replace the OEM horn with a Bosch Horn. Does anyone here already replace their horns? Is it a DIY job? thank you
I believe this thread may answer some of your questions about the relay and removing the bumper.aaronmp2315 said:did you use a relay on your aftermarket horns? because somebody told me that i need to use a relay on this bosch horns. the horns are located where? do i have to remove the bumber to get access to them? thank you for the pepolies i do really appreciate them.
Depends on the current draw of the horns. The aftermarket horns I installed in my Integra were made by Hella and did not require a relay since the current draw was close to stock.aaronmp2315 said:did you use a relay on your aftermarket horns? because somebody told me that i need to use a relay on this bosch horns. the horns are located where? do i have to remove the bumber to get access to them? thank you for the pepolies i do really appreciate them.
wolo bad boy horn available here: http://www.stylinconcepts.com/parts.aspx?partfamilyid=1722&q=Bad+Boy+hornRSeery said:Finally got around to getting a Wolo Bad Boy horn for my Pilot yesterday. Harbor Freight put them on sale for $35... $10 cheaper than usual. Install was pretty easy, but of course, I took off the grille and bumper. I used a relay because the Bad Boy pulls 15A and the stock relay is sized for 6A--call me overcautious. Plus, it was in the package with the horn. I used a tap on the stock horn wire, so I didn't have to cut anything, and I can reconnect the stock horns anytime. I'm going to try that just to see what it sounds like running all 3 horns. Got that idea from Sandcrab just now. It's a pretty loud horn with a startling tone. Just like I want. Attached is a pic I took after install. I annotated it just for fun. The horn and relay are mounted next to the stock horn on the passenger side. Any questions, let me know....
