Replace Touareg Horn

Lately, my horn sounds like a dead seal. Has anyone replaced their horn? Can you post some hints or directions please.

Thanks

Here are the parts that I came across that lead me to believe there is a high and low pitch (2 horns) installed. And I was told the Cayenne horns work with the Touareg too for a cheaper price.

We had the horn replaced 4 times in our '06 Touareg and now we've had the '09 T2 for about 2months and the horn has already broken just like the other one. Always seems to be the low-tone that quits working. Fairly ridiculous!!

Would you know if the Cayenne one sounds any different than ours?

Umm, I'd rather see your financial plan, or talk to your portfolio manager, or something! Congrats in having a touareg and a cayenne, very jealous!

As far as changing the horn, I think I've submitted and will have the dealer do it. removing part of the grill sounds scary to me, and I don't have the torq wrench.

I got tired of replacing the OEM horns and went with the Hella horns. Had the dealer do the work and am very satisfied with the result. They are loud and have an unusual tone. They get the approprate amount of attention and they DON'T require constant replacement.

horns

Hella horn died. Don't know what to try next. Could water be the problem? I have NEVER had a Hella horn go out. Any ideas will be greatfully accepted. This issue is getting very old.
