Product Description

The VW 6 Volt Horn is a direct replacement for your missing or no longer working horn. The horn fits 1954 through 1966 Beetles, 1956 through 1966 Karmann Ghias, 1955 through 1966 Type 2 Bus models and 1962 through 1966 Type 3s. The 6 volt horn will not work on VWs that have been converted to 12 volt.

1954-1959 VW Horn Wiring Diagram



1954 through 1959 Beetles the ground circuit starts at the steering box to coupler joint which is grounded past the rubber steering coupler with a ground strap, grounding out the metal steering shaft.

When the horn button is pressed the ground signal is completed from the shaft, through the horn button and wire which is attached to the horn button. The horn button wire runs to a copper sleeve on the steering shaft which is isolated from the steering shaft. The steering column housing has a carbon brush which presses against the copper sleeve. A brown wire on the brush is routed from underneath the dash, into the trunk and down to the horn and completes the circuit when the button is pressed.

Make sure that the horn button clip and the area that the clip sits against inside the steering wheel is not painted over or corroded as the button needs to ground against the steering wheel to complete the circuit.

1960-1967 VW Horn Wiring Diagram



1960-1967 Beetles the ground circuit starts on the steering box side of the steering coupler where a brown wire is attached to a coupler through bolt. That wire feeds past the rubber steering coupler and is run through the center of the steering column. At the steering wheel, the wire is mounting to the chrome horn ring.

When you press the horn ring down, the ground signal continues through the steering column tube, to a tab at the bottom of the tube. A brown wire connects there is routed into the car (above the pedal assembly on the bottom of the dash) then into the trunk and then runs down to the horn and completes the circuit when the button is pressed.

A few notes regarding the steering column tube, as it is part of the horn ground circuit, it is isolated from the body.

1960 and 1961 Beetles used plastic spacers and shims to isolate the tube. If those pieces are missing or worn, you will have to fabricate new pieces. The only other option is to change the tube and steering wheel to the 1962 through 1967 style.

1962 through 1967 Beetles use rubber mounting grommets (one at the firewall and one at the upper steering column bracket) to isolate the tube. If the steering column tube is not isolated, the horn will honk constantly.
