X5 E70 Horn gone limp

Hi

I have a 2007 E70 which was fine until a day ago when I found the horn had become very limp...sounded more like a toy car ...I have read a few things on line about a clicking sound when pressing the horn but I don't hear that.

So I want to check the relay and the horn units...but I don't know where they are

Could anyone tell me where I can find these and also if anyone knows of any common faults that might cause this

Thanks for any help

Fixed I think

Well after a few fiddly moments with the wheel arch liner I think I found the fault which was corroded connections. Took horn unit out, tested it , clean connectors and it appears both horn units now work.

Nightmare to get to...but fingers crossed .... sorted
