Hi guys
As we all know the standard qashqai horn is.....well pants.
So I bided my time and kept an eye on e-bay for a bargin,last week a new and boxed set came up for auction as the seller bought them only to discover they were too big to fit behind the grill off his smart car!!,I secured them for £11 + £2.99p P&P
This is the box showing what will easily fit behind the qashqai (or atleast our j10 model)




So once home from work I decided to give it a bash,grill off the car was easy,camera wiring still connected it laid on the slam panel out of the way.

Unplugged the existing horn and removed the horn(secured with a 13 mm bolt.next up was deciding were to mount the twin horns.
1 could obviously fit were the original went and I decided to fit the other to the right of the original,I trimmed a plastic cover and using an existing 10mm fixing bolt,mounted the horns side by side.
I cut the wiring connector off(keeping a length of it incase I need/want to refit the original horn come sale time) and using a multi meter on continuity found the black wite was the earth and the Green wire is the 12volt supply.
I extended both of these to reach the right hand horn and fitted piggy back spade terminals,then using the wiring tails in the box,linked the power and earth wires for the right horn to the left horn,wrapped up all the wiring with insulation tape, tested the horns(much louder) and refitted the grill.
Total time taken,20 mins.

I fitted a set of Piaa horns within days of picking up my QQ. One of the best things I have added, although I have only tooted them once, as I rarely use the horns. However, it is good to know there are there if needed. They really are loud.

I pipped the horn the other day when picking the wife up... needless to say you can't use this horn in anger on the road when some nonce cuts you up. So this post will come in very handy when I replace these in the near future. If any of you that have them and aren't going to fit them want to do a fellow member a deal you should stick them in the marketplace as I'm sure some of us would pick them up.

I have just ordered a pair from eBay for £5.99. So as soon as I get them I shall have a go. I fitted a pair on my truck and used them the same day when a van cut me up. Scared me so it must have put the wind up him.
