Time to replace...I replaced mine w// a louder one @ around 5000 miles because I thought it sounded too "ricey". Now it sounds like a truck.

My horn ( on the '09 ) is between the radiator and the grill. Very easy to remove. Mine looks just like OEM...only louder and deeper. Yes, plug & play. Try Auto Zone or any parts store...they all have them.

Anyone have a link to a good plug-in-play horn that's louder?
