MG ZR ZS ZT Technical - ZS180 Horn
Just a quick question . I,ve just chopped my ZR160 in for a ZS180 and was woundering if any other zs180 owners could confirm whether the horn on the zs is of a different type than on the ZR.. Its just that the ZS horn sounds really weak compared to the ZR160 horn.
|I've got a ZS 120, my wife has a ZR 105. The horns sound very similar (wouldn't be surprised to find it's the same part)|
|I have a ZS 120 and the horn is fecking loud. How I have laughed when it makes Sunday drivers jump out of their seats.|
|Mines pretty weak then... Is there a ZS 180 spec sheet that show the horn type ??Does anyone know|
|The horns have changed spec recently|
I Dont know abput the sound but i can confirm the ZS180 gives me the Horn every time i get in it!
Good to see you have traded in the girly ZR and got a real mans motor!
|A ZS180 Owner|
|The horns are 2 tone on each model and yes they are different. The ZR uses GGE 172 and GGE 149. The ZS uses GGE 168 and GGE 169.|
|Had it confirmed by the dealer that the horn is broken.. Unfortunately they have to take the bumper off to fix it.. 2 hour job darn.. Tried a zs at the dealers and the horn is very loud..|
Cheers everyone for help..
Dealer showed me a memo from rover and they have changed the entire horn from May 2002 onwards.. Cost saving I think..
Damm good deal on the zs180 I got . admititely it was 2nd hand . but only £1600 to change. That included 7000 miles on the clock, various stereo and alarm upgrades, tax and tank of fuel.
