I can't see how and/or where the horns are attached to
the body of my car. Can anybody point me the right
direction?

Anybody have a "spoiler" under the front of their
car? Mine does and I need to remove the horns, I think,
to bolt the thing back on. Took it off easily enough,
but putting it back on, seems the horns need to come off
first.

2Wrench, the horns are held on by 2 small bolts towards the front of the frame. I replaced my 2 w/ some high/low horns from Poop Boys; the new ones are so much louder. Since I had (have) my radiator out, it was a no brainer. I seem to think you could get them out w/o removing the spoiler, but not exactly sure. Let me know if you need a picture taken of their location..

Aren't they just bolted into threaded part of the body by 2 bolts?

That simple, I'm sure. By feeling towards the front,
I'm sure I'll locate them.

The spoiler came off the car in order to paint it.
Now in trying to rebolt, the threads seem to hide
somewhere beneath the horns. So, I'll pull 'em and
bolt the spoiler back on.

Might look at replacing the horns. Got original,
but not loud enough to be effective.

Thanks much.

All I really needed was the light of day and my
reading glasses with a touch of patience, none of
which I had the night I was looking.
Thanks for being there.

Crawl under the car and have someone hit the button. Works all the time. Be careful with air horns, you may require stitches.

Sorry about this but I am laughing very hard to myself right now.
We just got back from Jasper National Park.
The Bull Elk are quite aggressive at this time of year. They regularly "Can opener" offending cars with their horns if they think that the car is crowding the invisible turf lines around their harems.
Guess what I thought happened to your car?
