Yeah, I've noticed it'* hard too. You really need to put some pressure down, but my 95 was the same way. I think it might be normal.

This is a common complaint. Vehicles with airbags tend to have difficult to actuate horns. I don't know how hard yours if or if it is normal.

Ours is hard to blow too.
I find that pressing in the upper right or left corners with the palm of your hand
makes it a lot easier.

Mine is hard to press too, guess its a common problem. Oh well guess we'll have to wait in luxury for the traffic to move. :P

Part of the problem is where the contacts are with relationship to the airbag assembly (by airbag, I don't mean the driver himself, but the inflatable restraint )

I haven't seen a Bonneville yet with an easy (not loose) horn.
