Has anyone replaced the horn on a Seltos? Where is that thing hidden?

This is from a previous post I haven't looked to confirm "it sits under the driver side headlamp "
Thanks. It looks like I may not need to order a Horn Wiring Harness kit with relay because the manual is showing a Horn Relay fuse of 15 amps. I may be able to use the existing wiring. I just hope that the dual horn will fit where the original horn is.

There’s no DIY video on YouTube for Seltos yet. I’m hoping someone will do it soon.

There used to be a single unit horn that was like a train horn. Tried to order for my MGB but they were sold out. I'll see if I can dig it up in my browsing history.

I was sick of the pathetic PlaySkool toy horn in my Seltos SX, so I did some research and found a set of genuine Kia OEM dual horns on Ebay for $41. They came from Korea, so it took a couple-few weeks to get them. They are obviously high-quality OEM Kia horns and even came with the OEM pigtails to correctly mount and wire them. Had the car in to the dealer today for the transmission firmware update, and they swapped out the horns while it was in there. I never did ask where they're actually located, but I'm guessing in front of radiator somewhere. Net result is a ginormous improvement. Very nice two tone sound, like that of a Cadenza or K900. For $41 plus install cost, a good investment. This item # ought to get you to the ones I bought: 152781517944 Just enter that in the search box on Ebay.

See my post from couple days ago. Bought OEM KIA dual horns and had dealer install during a service visit. They sound great. They charged me 1 hour for install- $70. Worth it to avoid the hassle of doing them myself.

Are you going to install it yourself? Please let me know where the horn is located. Thanks.
Didn't know it was 2 horns to mount, so retuned them. Just want one loader horn in place of whimpy one. Still looking. and car in shop for jammbed sunroof. :(
