ow many horns does your Mercedes have? (Mine has 6!)
My 1991 Mercedes 560 SEL comes with a country horn and a city horn. (Only Mercedes thinks of these things) One is a high pitch horn, the
other has a deeper baritone sound to it. Both horns were damaged, so I went to my local Mercedes dealer to buy new horns. They could only
find one of the two horns in their computer system (the other was no longer available in the U.S. or Germany) so I purchased it. They also
gave me the part number for the second horn and suggested I contact the classic center in Irvine to get it, which I did. Turns out my car
has 6 horns! Who knew? And . . . the horn the dealer sold me was the wrong horn. It was the "alarm" horn - not the emergency horn. The parts
salesperson at the classic center was very nice and knowledgeable and suggested I purchase 4 horns (The car has two horns for the low pitch
and two horns for the high pitch) and made me a package deal. All 4 horns delivered to my house were only $180.00. Pretty reasonable given
they are hard to come by.
Once at the mechanic, we put the car on the lift and sure enough, all four horns were physically damaged. So we replaced all four horns.
Once again, my car now beeps two beautiful tunes . . .
The fifth horn is for the car alarm. I could never get a straight answer regarding what the 6th horn was for. Maybe one day, when it goes
off, I'll find out.
