Hi All,

Since we got this car (second hand, 4 years old), the horn has sounded a little feminine - it's a high pitched whine, one which could be louder. This is actually our second 2G S40 (the first one's roof picked a fight with the ground, and lost), the first one had a horn which sounded like a decent car's horn should, so it's not a general S40 thing.

The car has two horns: one high frequency, and one low frequency. I'm guessing that either the low frequency horn has given up, or it's not getting power. In order to test/replace the horns I need to get to them. As far as I can see, the only way to do this is to remove the bumper. Does the grille perhaps pop out? Or something else that would be easier than removing the bumper!

Many thanks.

Removal of the grill is easier than the front bumper. There are eight clips four on top four on the bottom. A smooth but stiff kitchen knife if inserted above the chrome shell at the clip location lift the knife while pulling the grill outward. repeat on each top clip. The bottom will then lift out.
