Faulty Horn / Location of Horn

Can anyone help me with this issue? I have a 2012 Freelander 2 HSE Lux and the horn has stopped working. I took it to my local independant garage today and they have checked for all obvious issues with fuses etc and no joy. I am booking it back in for a more thorough investigation. We are struggling to know where to start though in locating the horn! Where do we need to start and is it a big job in removing items to get to it? Any help would be appreciated. cheers, Richard

The horn(s) are attached to the bumper crossmember behind the front bumper. You have to remove the bumper to access.

See here for how to remove bumper:

Page 2050 of JLR workshop manual (free from this forum). Might help

"CENTRAL JUNCTION BOX
The CJB controls the following functions:
-the horns
-the liftgate latch motor and microswitches (including the liftgate external release switch)
-the liftgate ajar switch
-the turn signal indicators
-fuel filler flap operation.
The CJB also has a connection to the Restraints Control Module (RCM) for automatic operation of the interior lights and the
turn signal indicators in the event of an accident.
• NOTE: If the CJB is replaced, the new module will require configuring to the master car configuration using a Land Rover
approved diagnostic system.
The CJB automatically arms and disarms the active anti-theft system when the vehicle is locked and unlocked after
successful confirmation that a valid remote handset has been used."

The FL2 wiring diagrams are towards the back of the manual 2999-3203, yes over 200 pages of wiring diagrams Shocked Jules

Im afraid gone are the days when the horns were wiring to a switch on the stalk. Now you need a computer just to make a tooting sound. Sad Jules

Funny thing but my neighbour has a Skoda Yeti and the horn button in the steering wheel has failed. Unfortunately the dealers are having a problem getting the replacement slip ring mechanism from VAG and MOT is coming soon. I jokingly suggested a bike horn from Halfords, (the sort with a bulb that you squeeze) for £7 as an interim fix. Does anyone know if this would be acceptable for an MOT? Laughing Vintage cars have them. 3 x FL1 2 manual + 1 auto no real problems
