The more I read on this subject the more I become enchanted with the existing equipment. :lol:
I have to agree... once I started reading about tools I don’t have, I’m starting to think I’ll just buy the extra horn and get the family mechanic to fit it :lol: I’ll open it up and have a look at least, see what I’m dealing with.

Here's a cheap Y cable and it's for x2 volkswagen horns.
A complete kit, Y cable and x2 horns can be bought for around £18 🤔

See I like AliExpress for a lot of stuff but I’m not sure how comfortable I am using their electrical cables/parts in my car. Maybe just paranoia but it’s cheap for a reason and quality control is essentially nonexistent.

Also I saw something about a relay being recommended due to the additional current of Hella horns. Is that accurate or unnecessary?

I don't think you can go wrong with such a basic cable but I think I'd put a wee bit of silicone or similar in the plug cable entries to seal it better 👌
The beauty of this is you can put another vw horn on with the original.
As for the relay, there's no need simply because the T-Roc originally came with a twin horn on a 15 amp fuse which is still used for the one horn.

Another interesting thing I read on the German Forum today is their T-roc's already have the horn bracket installed on the right hand side where the second horn was supposed to be.
If this is the case I would consider the kuftec loom and install another vw horn 🤷‍♂️

I wonder has anyone noticed a horn bracket on the right hand side of ours?

Yeah good points. Do those VAG connectors not have some sort of rubber gasket inside for water resistance? Could probably make one anyway or as you suggest, just some silicone. Or for something removable, plumbers mait might do.

Even if the bracket is installed in the right side fog light housing, you’d somehow need to chase the cable behind the radiator. I think it makes more sense to put them both in the left housing if there’s space (which tiger tony suggests there very much is).

And it’s the low tone VW horn we would need, right?

High tone 👌

Yes the kuftec would need cable tied on route to the other side, I was thinking kuftec loom, horn (ebay) and my mechanic stick it on whilst giving it an oil change (which is a year away) five minute job for them especially with the car up and lower engine guard off 🤷‍♂️

Might take a look behind the fog light in better weather, I'm not overly bothered.
Funny I seldom use the horn although it might be because I'm slightly embarrassed to 🤔🙈

If anything it's something to rabbit on about here 😂

Unfortunately I paid for the 2 year service plan with VW so a 5 minute job for them would probably cost a fortune!

I think I’ll give it a go and buy an old mk7 Golf high horn (and the cable you suggested). Weird that it’s the high one we need because mine sounds like quite a high note already. I assumed it was the low one I needed for the deeper base note.
