    Just got my Hella superhorn today. My problem is how to remove the front grille without meshing it up. I tried to removed it but somehow, it's stock to the bumper. There's little space to work without removing the grille. Thanks for posting the diagram.

    Can't say about the new cars, but on mine there were two clips on each end. There's a small opening on top of the clips, just stick a screwdriver in there, and it should pop the clip.

    the top is easy, but the bottom seems that it is snap with the bumper and i can't find a way where to slide a screwdriver. if its screwed to the bumper, it is hard to see and access behind the grille.

    There are 4 screws along the bottom of the grill on the inside of it. You have to like reach your hand up along the back of it to feel them.

    I installed mine yesterday without removing the grille & not using the relay that came with it. The OEM horn has a relay & 15A fuse. You can connect the a male connector to the existing wire of the OEM horn to you Hella Supertone. When I drove my car in the freeway after I installed it, car on the right lane changed lane without looking, so I press the horn hard and it scared the Hella-out of him. Avoided the accident. Its Hella useful.

    I would still recommend using the relay and schematic they provide. Yes, it will work on stock wiring ( I did this for a while), but the horns sounded better and were significantly louder with direct wiring.
