Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

Hey Juan,

Glad to hear you got the books and are plugged in! And I was able to see your pictures just fine.

So the horn wire goes down the center of the column and then comes out through a hole, loops around the column, and then goes through the fire wall. I seem to recall a grommet where the wire comes out if the column, but I'm not 100% sure. Both my Sonetts are wrapped up and sleeping for the winter, so can't easily check. At any rate, it seems that where the wire comes through the hole tends to be where it breaks. Seems like on one car, I had to fish a new wire down through in order to fix it.

And who knows what was done to your car? Like I say, people seem to like to mess around with Sonett wiring, and maybe its all gone.

But that's how both of mine were done.

And you have to understand that the Sonett is a bit of a weird beast in the Saab world. It's not much above the level of a kit car. Some stuff is cobbled together from the Saab parts bin and changes within a given year are common. The fit and finish is quite variable as well.
