Gday

Can someone tell where the horn is located on a 09 Vibe 2.4L base version?

Thanks

Front crash bar behind the bumper cover. Pop the hood and look down behind the grilles and you will see it.

For the life of me I can't find it. Previous owner must have relocated it.

Odd. On all of these cars, it's generally between the radiator and the front bumper.

Attached is a picture of the horn installed. Where the black arrow is pointed is close to the location of the hood latch. The horn bracket is mounted with one bolt to the radiator support. If the horn is not there, check to see if the wire for the horn is still in that area. You may be able to find the horn by tracing the wire back to it if the horn was moved.

Finally found it. It was literally on the bottom of the car driver side right behind the fog light. I had to take the bottom engine cover to get at it.

Thanks

I don't think that's where it's usually at. I will look at dad's later to see. It's always been near the hood latch on nearly every modern vehicle I've looked at.

In my 2009, the horn is as pictured above. Do you think someone took the mounting bolt out, dropped the horn, and just just said the heck with it, leaving lay at the bottom? Is the mounting bracket still on it or is it a different/replacement horn?
