Citroen Relay horn location?

Post by courierrelay »

Does anyone know if this is indeed the horn on my van?
Just spent 2 hrs looking for the bugger. According to Google and various forums it is located on the passenger side underneath the headlamp. Took out the lamp and front grill and couldn't find it at all.
Something made me have a look on the drivers side and I spotted 2 wires disappearing into the top of the wheel arch. I had a feel around and felt something maybe resembling a horn. Nightmare to see let alone get to so I reached in with the camera phone and this is what came out....

Looks very much like it and the connector is the same as on my C5

That's another thing, I could just about get my fingertips onto that connector but couldn't unclip it. Is there a nack?

Probably - there are two horns on mine, I broke the connector and a wheel on a low island at 70mph. Have tried to bodge the connector without success but the other horn is more than loud enough.
Didn't try disconnecting the other.

Yours does look hard to access, pretty corroded too.

Those are Mixo brand horns. Looks like you have lost the plastic snail trumpet from the front of them.

They're some of the better horns around (available in High, Mid and Low tones, but normally just a pair installed), and were used on a good few upmarket vehicles.

You can't beat a good french horn.

Finally got it off. There's power going to it, just no sound. Just been to Halfords and got a replacement. Universal job which means I have to cut wires and attach spade connectors. Hopefully tomorrow morning I will have the horn.
