I decided to get horny this weekend!

The stock horn on the Leaf is too embarrassing to even use. So, this weekend I swapped it out for these PIAA horns. Now it sounds like a real car!

I used the 400/500 Hz. pair as I liked that sound better than the 500/600 Hz. version...

Cool. Anything special needed to do this beyond a screwdriver?

Re: I decided to get horny this weekend!

I was able to mount both on the two bolts that are in the area of the old horn; one on the top bolt that held the old horn and one on the bottom bolt (which was previous used). Note that the two bolts are a slightly different millimeter so you will need a different wrench for each. You might be able to get to it from above but I took the easy way out and removed the bottom pan to get access as per the service manual since I wanted to do the LED fog lights at the same time.

Re: I decided to get horny this weekend!

Does this type require it's own relay? If so, how did you wire it in?

Nope, the car already has it's own horn relay so nothing additional need be added.

Yep, it took me about 90 minutes from start to finish.
