Default Replacing the Horn

Mine'* broke.

I got a used one from the local yard. I am lazy and don't feel like taking off all the plastic shielding to put the horn in its' stock location. I was wondering if any of you knew what wires I need to intercept in order re-route the wires to the 'new' horn.

In case I don't feel lazy tomorrow, which plastic shields need to come off in order to gain access to the horn?

Is there a way to come up from the bottom without taking the plastic shielding off.

I wouldn't mind taking off the plastic shielding, but after almost 10 years of age and 165,000 miles I assume most of the plastic clips are going to break and the wheel well cladding will not go back on the way it is now.

A few pushclips or small screws and you'd be into the wheel well, which is what needs to pop out of the way for you to do the job correctly.

Being that it would probably take more effort to find the wire, cut, put a connector etc on it..... yeah. Sorry.. I'd make you do it the right way.
