dash,

Sorry to hear about your sad experience. You can safely fit the Hellas in your i20. All you need is a good relay (to handle the extra electrical load) and good guage wiring from the relay to the horns.

If done well, there won't be any cutting of any wires involved. The installation from the end points that plug into your current horn stock wiring can be done with male jacks that plug in.

This connection is then routed to the relay from which a connection is then drawn to the Hellas.

PM me if you need the name of a good installer. I got a pair of aftermarket horns fitted last year and have had no problems with either the horns or the installation.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
gpa

Help Needed from Hella Redgrille Owners
can someone check the wiring diagram of the hella redgrilles?
is there a fuse in between the battery and the relay?

The TASC screwed up the connections, and it wasnt working. I made a fuss and they've connected the wires by twisting them around the terminals of a 30A fuse ( the type you see inside the fusebox) - its not pretty.

if anyone can post a shot of how the connection is , and the fuse if there is one, I'd be much obliged

I should / could have been able to answer that, but I am running my Red Grill direct in place of stock horns. It's all good!

Default Swift OEM horns

Hello,

Can anyone tell me the specification and MRP of OEM Swift double horns? I know the brand is Hella. Also the place where I can get from Cochin. I'm planning to fix this in my M800.

Thanks,
Jose.

^^ There was a horn problem in my zen since last week. I went to this accessories shop near 4th block signal near to Adviat fuel/LPG bunk (Taj accessories I think). My horn used to blare sometimes and sometimes used to bleep like a tame wet cat. Other times I had to stand on the steering with little effect. He showed me 3 horns. The stock ones, a Skoda and Hella red grill. I was impressed with the Hellas but the price he quoted was 1100 but was willing to fit em at 1000. He also said that I had to buy them in a pair and not a single piece. Zen has only one horn. Since they were not finding any place to place the other horn of the pair, and of the many threads on cars catching fire due to faulty/hasty installations I asked them to get me OEM horns and fit only one of them and the other I intended to gift to a fellow BHP-ain on the give away thread Just as he was fitting the horn, I asked him if the stock horn had gone Kaput. He said 'No'. I asked him then what was the problem. He siad the clip was broken. I asked him to replace the clip and the job was over in 10 minutes with 30 bucks. I went home happy.

Do those Hella red ones cost 1100 ??
He also suggested that people will move out of the way with the Hellas but I wasn't going to scare fellow road users. The Stock horn does what it has to perfectly.

Octavia horns are great for Maruti 800,zen and swift. They sound polite yet yelling its road prescence. Its for those who check horns' decibel ratings as prescribed by respective RTOs. Like me.

I installed Stebel Nautilus Series horn in my Zen and Elantra. Its fitted as a secondary horn and it is dedicated for the highway drives only. It costed me Rs.850 each. I have installed them with the horn pointed downwards, to avoid damaged caused during water wash. The sound quality did not reduce with this setup.

A word of advice - we get a lot of Chinese make of this product in GP road. It costs somewhere around 600 - 650 only, but it does not have the effect of the original Nautilus series. So insists on "Made in Italy" mark on the product packaging.

Guess you are talking about windtones; Bosch ones cost 450-500rs and sound very loud but polite.
