    Exclamation Weird Vitz Horn Issue

    Lately, I have been experiencing Weird issue with my vitz horn. If I turn the steering to left (at least 90 degree) it'll honk then, but if it's straight OR turned right (sometimes works on the right too) than it will not honk, what could be the reason, any experience what would it cost?

    Thanks!!!

    That coil is called clock spring.

    Please donot attempt to get it repaired if your vehicle has an AIRBAG (Most likely). This may lead to very dangerous situation if your repaired clockspring shorts out in fututre.

    So the only opiton I have left with is to either replace the clock spring or leave it alone, is it right ?

    Yes. My advise would be to get a used one from market. I have heard, that toyota's clocksprings are not that expensive.

    I was thinking the same, to get from kabariya etc. First I'll check it from Toyota what they are going to charge, and then I'll search market for it. I hope it's not that expensive :s

    There is a member selling vitz steering wheel. Search previous threads.
    Otherwise install a push button on pillar (New Khan bus style)
    The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it.

    As said - do not attempt to repair the clockspring and make sure its centered when you install it. If its off centre it will break again as the steering goes to full lock. (If your car as evidence of steering rack replacement/repair - it can be assumed the mechanic did not centre and lock the steering before undoing the pinchbolt of the column.

    Toyota made generic clocksprings and used them in all cars of same production era.

    Thank you @Xulfiqar bhai for the tip. I went to "Auto Plaza" in Multan and found a replacement in 2200. Now the horn is working again Thank you @waqar19 for the thread.
