There's plenty available on ebay for under a tenner if anyone requires one. Heres one I found in less than a minute which is perfect for modifying :-

I might even pick a few up myself and prepare them ready for anyone if they are interested in changing their horn ?
Just ordered one off eBay with the same connector - so will "do the mod" for the wires and try out my Denali Soundbomb next week hopefully, 110dB should be enough I hope! I'll try to do pictures of the conversion as I go about it, as well as some sound "bites" for comparison

behind the bumper under the headlight on the left side i think
Correct, You need to remove the LH fog light to get to it.
That's correct, once you've popped out the nearside fog light you can see the horn just behind it towards the centre of the vehicle. As long as your hands aren't like gorillas you can easily get in to remove it !

I simply replaced that pathetic single horn with twin horns from Hella.
I installed my twin setup with the correct VW plug and socket, so its a 5 minute job to remove it all and fit back the original single horn later when I come to sell the vehicle. That's just in case my next vehicle purchase also has a single horn ! :o

See the previous posts regarding twin horns viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1117
Which Horns did you go too? Any good?
It seems im having to use mine a bit much, and the single tone horn is shameful!
