    Paul , all mk4s come with 2 horns (or at least all UK models did)

    Id check the connectors are in tact and theres nowt blocking the movement of air at the trumpets of each horn that could make it sound crap

    if it sounds stupidly high or stupidly low in comparison then one of the horns will be dud. Basically u got a high & low tone horn working in unison to produce the tone that u hear

    You could always fit 2 new ones or aftermarket FIAMM ones for instance if yours are somehow on their way out

    well u can get a good pair of FIAMM horns here:

    or (IF YOU'RE BRAVE) worth a punt are these "air horn" ones which should be a direct fit

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/TWIN-AIR-CAR-HORN-VERY-LOUD-SIREN-SET-DUAL-TONE-12V-NEW_W0QQitemZ120313361303QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item1 20313361303&_trkparms=72%3A1301|39%3A1|66%3A2|65%3 A12|240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14


    I honestly wouldnt waste my money on the official Vx one above - FIAMM are the number 1 in horn manufacturing so the twin set in my first post should be ideal. I used a set a few years back and they were ace. Personally If I was doing it again, Id try one of the cheap air horn kits...maybe wire it in as an acessory with its own switch somewhere so u have the choice of normal horn or GET THE FLUCK OUT MY WAY HORN!

    Yeah disconnect one at a time see if that works or cover both them up with ur hand whilst sum1 presses the horn - make sure their covered tho!

    youll feel the vibration of which one is pusling

    might just need 1 replaced but defo at that price id buy a matched pair - novelty or otherwise
