So I've decided the civic horn is a chick horn, so I'm replacing it, any brand ideas? I'd rather replace the oem horn than add an air horn


(Moderator’s Note: this newly merged thread is now the place to post any and all concerns about upgrading and/or replacing the weak (especially in the R18 models) horn in our Civics. The thread, as it now sits, contains questions (some asked many times over), suggestions on what to use as replacement(s), and a DIY or two.)

You should hear the CR-Z horn, so embarassing lol!

This is a common complaint even with the 8thgens. Try replacing it with a horn from the Accord if its compatible. Check collegehillshonda.com for the 8thgen DIY. Hopefully it shouldnt differ too much.

Get a small truck horn, like from a ranger or even a ram. Truck horns have authority. Lol

And if you wanna hear embarrassing, try listening to my '00 civic's horn... Gay! Haha

I definitely want to replace. Doesn't the Accord horn have a high and low? I so which is the replacement for our horn.

I agree it's a chick horn and after almost being run off the highway yesterday it makes me wonder if other Cars can hear it well enough if the radio is up!?
