SOURCE: air bag sensors light on

There may not be a sensor in that very location where the damage is but it may have been enough to trigger at least one sensor. The thing to do would have a shop hook up a scanner and see why the light is on instead of replacing sensors. Usually it takes more force to trigger a sensor inside the car than it does to trigger and outside sensor. And at least two sensors need to trigger before an airbag is deployed.

How to remove front bumper


Remove screws in wheel wells holding bumper to inner fender, and fender. Then remove screw holding the splash guard to the lower bumper cover. Finally, remove screws holding the bumper cover to the core support on each side of the grill, and possibly the outer corners, near the head lamps. There will be some pin/clips retaining the bumper cover still, but separate easily without tools.

My horn isnt working, and i cant locate where it is


You don't mention the year, but the location is probably forward of the left front wheel behind the bumper cover. Note that when working anywhere near the air bag impact sensors, steering column, or instrument panel it is recommended that you disable the system by disconnecting the neg. battery cable and wait 2 minutes before working on the car, to avoid accidental deployment of the air bag. Before all this though, have you checked under the hood (I mean bonnet!), fuse #6 in the power distribution center, and under the dash at the fuse block, fuse #7? If the horn isn't working check these 1st. Hope you fix the bloody thing! Let me know how it goes and if you need further help.

That is the only sensor to trigger the bags. The new module needs to be programmed to the car by the dealer or someone with a scan tool capable of that.
