Has anyone actually changed their horn? I'm reading through guide on how to remove front bumper so I can change the horn.

Just to let you know, the facelift horn is just the same :lol:

Mine seems a little louder than my previous one, but I think that is down to the petrol not having soundproofing on the underside of the bonnet :lol:

I am thinking of upgrading mine, but I don't fancy removing the front bumper :?

I noticed on another post that which shows the front bumper off on a 225 and it has twin horns :shock:

I wonder if we can order them and do a straight swap? Think I would rather have genuine Renault ones rather than do 3rd party :?

Can't understand why the Clio has two but the Megane makes do with one :(

I know, it's very strange Privelage.

However they only put the two tone horn into the previous generation Clio late on in its product cycle.

My sister's 52 plate Clio Dynamique 1.2 16v had a single tone, yet my (2 months younger) 52 plate Dynamique Billabong dci had a two tone.

Weird, Non?!

Still prefer the Meggie though, rubbish horn or not :P
