Question Replacement Horn

Hello!

I wanted to know if anybody replaced their horn? If anything I can't stand on my 2009 e350, is the horn. So embarrassing and wimpy.

Is your horn different from the 2006 E350 models?? I think my horn sounds pretty manly and aggressive!!! LOL

I would love to find a horn from an older MB Truck, 1119?. They had such a great sound, very much a beep beep. I have one horn right now that fails and sounds like a sick goose, of course it doesnt do it when at dealer.

You can always swap for one of these: http://www.amazon.com/Stebel-Nautilus-Compact-Motorcycle-Horn/dp/B000NPRTII or these: http://www.amazon.com/Wolo-Model-320-2T-Universal-Replacement/dp/B00029XGQ4

Pleubner in W163 forums put Stebel horns in and was scaring women and children
They sound amazing.

The O/P will probably find that the high-tone horn (which is the one visible at the front of the car when the bonnet is lifted) will have failed. It is a simple job to replace. It generates a difference tone with the low pitched horn which is mounted elsewhere on the car.

My 2008 E550 same thing - the "horn" sucks to no end - pathetic isn't the right word - my kids have toys that make more noise.

I've dug out two horns from my 108 parts bin - high and low - I think I'll try rigging those up.
