Re: [T3] Horn doesn't work


I had a similar problem with the horn on my 1971 Fastback. I noticed it
when I was stuck behind someone who had not noticed that the lights had
changed about five minutes ago. I fixed my horn by removing it fcar, and opening it by removing the five(?) screws that hold it
together. You then have a stainless steel diaphram which is sandwiched
between the two halves of the horn body. The diaphram has a magnet
attached which is moved by an electromagnet when the circuit is closed
to make the noise. Water had got inside my horn over time and the
stainless steel had rusted a little. So I sanded the stainless steel
back with fine sandpaper (600+) until it was perfectly clean and
smooth. I cleaned the rest of it and put it back together, and it now
works perfectly.
