Broken Horn

Recommended Posts

matt.green164

My horn is broken on a 04' VLX and I can't locate it behind the dash. Do you have to remove the carpet panel at your feet to find the horn?

Thanks,

Matt

On my 03 RLX the horn is actually located in the air intakes for the engine. If yours is the same way, there are two black vinyl caps on the dash that go up against the windshield. Unscrew the drivers side one and there it is. I replaced mine with one that goes "OOOHHGGAA" it's halarious

The horn should be inside your dash shroud, you need to remove your gauge pod and it's right behind that.

Two screws in the Malibu emblem on your dash and one Phillips screw right above the center gauge. With those 3 screws out the whole gauge pod slides out for you to access where they have the horn mounted.

Hope this helps

Stock horn is useless. Forget about it, but add one of those two pipe truck fog horns. That'll work. Might need another battery, but . . . .

Good catch, and the compressor can also be useful in filling the tubes.

Agreed, the one on the end of my cane is much louder

Thanks for this Paul. May be an old post, but golden nonetheless. Saved me a bunch of time fumbling around in spaces I need not go. I could have asked Andrew yesterday when I picked up the new horn, but that would have been way too easy....
