Moss Dual Air Horns kit model 902-170

[8/7/2002] Reviewed by: Sean Denny -

Applicable to: '99 + 1.8 liter

Two plastic air horns, compressor, air tubing, mounting hardware, and instructions for a different model.

When I opened the box and looked at the instructions, it was obvious the model of the compressor had been changed. The new compressor has a larger mounting bolt that does not fit the hole on the included mounting bracket or the grounding wire included. There was only one bolt in the kit that fit the compressor, so I did not use the wrong part. After drilling out the mounting bracket and modifying the ground strap, I installed per the instructions. Less than a week later, the horns stopped working. I checked my install, and everything was still tightly in place, so I checked, and found, a blown 15 amp fuse for the horn. In two weeks time I’ve blown two more fuses, and I don’t use the horn very much (<1 day). Clearly, Moss tried to change compressor models with out testing the whole kit. For my expense and time I am actually worse off, because I don’t know if my horn will work or if the fuse is blown. The stock horn was feeble, but at least it worked.

Under 30 minutes to remove completely
