Hey all

Is it just me or is the horn on these cars pathetic!  Not that I'm driving around with my hand planted on it, but needed to use it today and I can't see how it would have alerted anyone!

Has anyone replaced theirs/any recommendations?

Thanks!

I totally agree, it was the first thing I did when I got my Auris.

I got a pair (high & low tone) of second hand Avensis horns off eBay (e.g: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/153165393620)
I chose these as they were a direct replacement as far as wiring and mounting is concerned. If you check your existing horn you will see that there is a bolt hole on the other side of the existing horn mount to take a second bracket/horn. You just need to make up a y-splitter type cable for the power using some short lengths of cable and crimp spade connectors so that you can daisy chain the power to the second horn.

Have a look here for pictures:

Is this the same for the Facelift Auris Touring ( 2015) . the Horn is shocking to be honest , I think the  dog breaks wind louder 🙂

I'm not sure, but I doubt it would be much difference.

I have managed to get to the horn as with a bit of jiggling about the plastic trim above the grill can be moved to allow access to the horn . I gave found that the wire going to the single horn looks very thin . Will this be a problem if i fit the dual horns off a avensis or another Toyota

The horn is protected by a 10amp fuse. According to the net, the stock Toyota horns draw 4amps, so using two would still be within the limit.

If you were going to use air-horns or similar, then you would need to use a relay and dedicated power feed.

I failed to get the Grill off my Mk2 facelift , but I found if you take all the clips and the one bolt out the top plastic panel can jiggled about and made to flip up . It cannot be removed fully due to a bolt bracket. I was able to access the horn and replace with a pair of low and high tone horns. I did not cut the wiring on the car but made a jump lead that fitted into the original horn connector. Works really well no more Noddy Horn.
