Engage the hood latch to pop the hood of your Caprice. Prop it up with the stabilization stick.

Locate the stock horn near the front of the under hood area. It's circle shaped like school bell and attached to a bracket by screws.

Unscrew the stock horn from the bracket and unplug the wires plugged into the socket. Set the screws aside so they don't get lost. Remove the stock horn from you Caprice.

Place the new horn against the bracket and screw it in tight. Plug the wires into the horns socket. Once the replacement horn is secure, test it out by pressing the horn button on your steering wheel. When everything is in place, close the hood and dispose of the old horn.
