Q: I need some help locating the horn on my car - 2008 Audi TT

asked by on

I have a mk 2 audi tt and I wanted to install a new horn on it, but I didnt realize that it would be so complicated. I was wondering if someone knew the horn location and exactly how to get to it. I think that I have to remove the front bumper or something like that, but have not been able to find any guide on how to do so.

My car has 70000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Most vehicle horns are located either behind the grille or behind the front bumper. I would recommend driving the vehicle up on ramps to determine if access to the horns is possible from under the bumper.

If not, it is possible that the bumper would need to be removed in order to gain access to the horn. It is also possible that the horn is accessible from under the hood. If you are in doubt about this repair, I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a qualified professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to help you replace the horn on your car.
