W115 Horn Mount = Ground

Dumb Question - do our horns ground at all via the the stud exiting rear of horn to mounting bracket to body? Could a corroded mount affect horn function?

Typically MB horns have two wires, meaning one for power and another for ground.

On the W115 the horns are close to the ground. Lots of exposure to road debris/grime/corrosion.
