Red face Car Horn Location and Modification

I'm coming home from spring break and I want to do a little project.

I want to locate a horn from a 1963 Mercedes 600 Grosser
like this one
(Skip to 5:12ish for the horn sound)
YouTube - Top Gear RR Corniche e MB 600 Grösser (p2)


1. Where is the Car Horn Located ('08 2.5S)?
2. Any ideas how to find a 1963 Mercedes 600 Grosser horn?
3. If Grosser Horn can't be found, where should I go to get a Louder "get the f*** out of my way" horn?

I find the horn on the Altimas and one most newer cars....girly.

Thanks!

As far as the horn location goes, you'll have to take off the bumper to get to it. I believe they are located somewhere under the driver side headlight. If I remember correctly, I think there are two. Not sure what each one is for though.

Right above the orange bulbs are the horns. Got to take the bumper off to get to them.

You can get to the stock horns without pulling the bumper, with the undercar tray piece removed. But, there's not a lot of space to work and you are going to have some battle scars on your hands/arms. The wiring harness is pretty short, which limits working room as well.

according to Wiki its the loudest horn put on a production car and Ive heard they cost only around $200 if you find one.. or a replica one. And in the video Clarkson brags about how loud the horn is.

So your saying you have one week to track down this horn and install it? I'm doubtful. Have fun during your break though!
