Toyota Premium Horns

Toyota Premium Horn 2007 2008 2009 2010 2010 2011 2012 2013 RAV4 Camry Sienna | eBay

Has anyone installed these on their 4.4 (or earlier model)? How much of a hassle would it be? (I'm really not into taking the whole grille & bumper off, etc.) A couple of sellers in Japan are selling these for around $80-85 US. I have a $40.00 "Ebay Bucks" certificate coming to me at the end of the month and I thought about putting it toward this. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

Not sure about these horns and I wouldn't spend that much on a set of horns. Oh, btw I have a $90 eBay bucks certificate coming up soon
Removing the bumper takes me about 10 minutes, so for me it wouldn't be a problem to do the install. It just the price that scares me

I've got a set of the same genuine Toyota premium horns sitting on a shelf in my garage. If anyone wants to buy them, PM me. I'll sell them for what I paid, $85 USD + shipping.

To hear them, go to this link. The "play" button on the left is the premium horns, the "play" button on the right are the stock RAV4 horns:

Congratulations. I'm proud of you.......If it's that easy then I may give it a shot. The link was for reference. There are other sellers selling the same horns cheaper. Its just that these horns seem to be much louder and have more of a GM sound to them. I was never a fan of the 'road runner' sound. Plus they're Toyota horns and should plug right in. Around here (NY City) too many people walking & driving like they're in another world, sometimes the louder your horn, the better...........

I am not sure how much space is available on the 4.4 but on the 2008 4.3 I had to "remove the top plastic radiator cover and work down between the A/C condenser and grille".

I have big hands and I was able to complete the job easily. I think on the 2009-2012, the horns are place differently and the bumper has to come off.

And yes, the bumper is easy to remove; about 30 retainers to remove if you want the whole bumper off. I suppose you could just detach half the bumper for this job.
