Can,t you just get a single air horn on top of a canister of compressed air? Then just stick it out of the window as and when required. :D

Presumably it would need tethering to the vehicle in order to be MoT compliant...

Couple of cable ties should do it. ;)

I tend to use the brakes,steering or GO pedal rather than the horn ,
 I can't remember the last time I used the horn  :P ;D

I've always felt the Zafira's horn could do with upgrading, it's very weak little "peep" type sound.  ......
As a Zafira is basically an Astra underneath i'm surprised because the two Astra Gs I had both had twin tone horns like the Omega had. In fact I replace the pathetic parp horn on SWMBO's Citroen with a pair of horns from the Astra I broke.
You sure one of the original horns hasn't died?

Depends what model Zaf it is. My "A" was mid range and had a single while the "B" is SRI and has twin.
My 2.5 diesel elite estate only had a single

It's a Tourer, so Zaf-C and SRi spec.  :)

My 1975 T150V Triumph Trident had a very quiet horn & after a couple of near misses I replaced it with an air horn compressor (about 2/3 diameter of an oil filter cartridge & the same depth) a couple of air pipes & the horns. Disadvantage is the compressor took 0.5seconds to spin up but when it did everybody within a half mile radius heard you, so recommended if you want to be heard & noticed. :y :y :y
