You have two studs, why not just go crazy and mount both horns! That would be like twice as much horns!

So, I gave up on getting it correct, and just bolted one horn to one of the studs.

The factory-original single horn is mounted using 2 studs. Because it is so powerful, it needed double fasteners.

My car is a very early MK11, and it has the two studs on the front panel, so I assume that is where the horn(s?) mount.
The horns I have came with the car, but there is no reason to believe they are original, or even from this car, for that matter.
I checked the wiring, and there are only two terminals, that would support the single horn configuration.

All the cars I've seen with a factory horn fitted is just that - horn singular.
Even the MPi only has one, anything else is aftermarket or borrowed from another vehicle.


Don't forget to add relays if you're adding extra power to the horn circuit.

What you have are late model horns and They are attached to the inner wing. A true MkII has a flat style horn as pictured by Red Riley.

I can see the two studs. It's just not obvious to me how the horns go on and miss all the other stuff in the vicinity.
Picture of the two studs, and of the two horns I have.
It is very possible that I am making some unwarranted assumptions! Are these indeed the correct horns? Correct brackets?
Thanks all,
Jim

On the left side of the slam panel, facing the engine bay, there are two studs. They hang there.

I have the horns for my '67 Cooper S, and they have the little mounting straps. Does anyone have a picture of installed horns, so I can figure out the proper orientation?
Thanks
Jim
