Phew, I'm out of breath reading that entire paragraph. PLEASE use punctuation! Not only is it proper etiquette, it will hep you get an answer since most people don't even bother to read a post thats one run-on sentence.

Anyways, yes, the horns are below by the radiator.

Hi Jeremy,

The (two) stock horns are bolted onto metal plates that are welded to the vertical post in front of the center of the radiator. That post should be painted the car body's color. You'll have to ask really nicely about wire routing, as I'd then have to "liberate" that building from a harsh winter in order to take a look.

I don't know what a pone picture is....

Couple pics attached. The camera was at a funny angle in the last one, so tilt your head to the left.

Its opposite hand of the one in the pic. You can see it in the lower left corner of the first picture. I may not have time real soon to take another picture, maybe later today or this evening.

Yes, its a w115, 1974 240D. They're just behind and below the bottom of the radiator.

I apologize, this weekend was busier than I expected. I just got out to the car with the camera again. The passenger side horn is NOT opposite hand of the drivers side horn like I thought. I just glanced at it quickly before, sorry about the incorrect information I gave you before.

Attached are a couple pics. I didn't have my small work camera with me, my camera is larger and its tough to get it up in the tight area to get a good pic.

This is from the front of the car looking toward the back. The bolt to the left of the horn is the mounting bolt.


This is from the ground looking mostly upwards, the mounting bolt is to the left of the horn.


This view is from behind the horn looking forward and slightly to the left (drivers side), that's the mounting bolt above the horn.


Again, good luck with it, sorry it took a little while to get these pics up.
