Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

What does a horn assembly do?

When the horn button (usually located in the centre of the steering wheel) is pressed, an electrical signal is sent to the horn relay, allowing power to flow to the horn(s) which are often located under the bonnet. This circuit is known as the horn assembly.

A functioning horn is an essential safety component of any vehicle on the road. As a driver, you’ll use the horn to warn others of your vehicle's approach or presence, or to call attention to a hazard on the road. In fact, if your horn is missing or broken and does not sound when pressed, then this will result in an MOT failure. So to avoid hassle and money in the long run, it's best to have a broken horn replaced as soon as possible.

Audi

Audi AG is a German automobile manufacturer, established over 100 years ago in April 1910, and has been owned by the Volkswagen Group since the 1960s.

This marque design and engineer luxury vehicles and distributes them worldwide. In the UK alone, there were over 1.7m Audi vehicles on the roads in the final quarter of 2018; a number that is continually growing year after year, and has more than doubled in the past decade.

Audi’s success can be attributed to its ability to move with the times, retaining its reputation as a prestige manufacturer and as part of the ‘big 3’ German marques responsible for high sales throughout the world market, alongside Mercedes and BMW.

Luxury executive vehicles for every type of driver

Audi’s current range features predominantly luxury executive and family cars of varying sizes: with compact to full-size saloons, coupés and sportback models, complemented by a growing range of SUV and sports car models.

Vorsprung durch Technik

The Audi brand is easily recognisable by their 4-ring logo—originally representing the four car companies to create Audi’s predecessor company, Auto Union—and their world famous slogan that ran for over 30 years, translated as ‘Being ahead through technology’. Despite no longer being used in their mainstream marketing, the meaning behind it still stands true of the brand today.

Audi: A sensation in rallying motorsport

Throughout the 1980s the Audi Quattro was famous for dominating rallying worldwide. The introduction of their four-wheel drive turbocharged model went on to win the World Rally Championships in both 1983 and 1984 and amassed a number of podium finishes and titles throughout the decade, all across the globe.

Audi’s reliability and reputation

Audi ranked 20th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018. Audi’s reputation for creating reliable running vehicles has steadily improved over time to become a strong contender to some of the Asian brands that have continued to dominate in this area.

How often should a horn assembly need replacing?

In an ideal world your horn assembly should last the lifetime of the car, but there are instances where this is not the case. Just like any other electrical component in a vehicle, there will be times when the horn will need replacing due to corrosion, bad wiring, water damage or a faulty relay.

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

The functionality of your car horn will be checked as part of your MOT. A faulty or quiet horn is classed as a minor on the test, however if your horn is inaudible to other road users this will result in an MOT failure. To avoid the hassle and cost of an MOT fail, it’s best to have your horn fixed as soon as you notice an issue.

What causes a horn assembly to break?

Car horns are located just under the bonnet so they’re exposed to rain, debris and other nasties. If this dirt or rain gets into the horn’s innards, it can short out the circuit and break the vehicle horn (and blow the fuse in the process). However, a horn assembly consists of multiple components which could also affect the functionality of the horn. For example, a broken car horn can also be caused by a bad horn switch in your steering wheel, a broken “clock spring” under the steering wheel, a faulty horn relay, or bad wiring.

When should a horn assembly be replaced?

As soon as you notice that your horn is not as loud as it used to be or if there is no sound at all, you should have the horn assembly looked at by a mechanic as soon as possible. Without a working horn you could be a danger on the road and your car will almost certainly fail its next MOT.

What are the signs of a bad horn assembly?

Usually, there a few signs you can look for:

  • Your horn makes no sound when the button is pressed

  • Your horn is too quiet to be heard by other road users

  • Clicking sound from the horn relay

  • Burning smell from under the bonnet

What happens during a horn assembly replacement?

During the repair our certified mechanics will:

  • Inspect the entire horn assembly and identify the part(s) that need replacing

  • Disconnect the battery

  • Replace the necessary parts, either the button, relay or the horns

  • Reconnect the battery and test the horn

What is the average lifespan of a horn assembly?

A horn assembly is built to last the lifetime of the car, but there are instances where this is not the case. Just like any other electrical component in a vehicle, there will be times when the horn will need replacing due to corrosion, bad wiring, water damage or a faulty relay.

Can you drive with a broken horn assembly?

No, you should get your car horn fixed to ensure you are safe on the roads. It is both unsafe and illegal to drive with a broken horn, as it is an essential safety feature in your car. Failing to replace a broken horn will also result in an MOT failure.
