Default Horn replacement.

Has anyone replaced their weak sounding horns on a 2013 Beetle?

I bought a set of Hella Supertones and would appreciate any suggestions on how to access and replace the stock horn.

It's probably likely that you have to remove the bumper to access the horns.

Both horns should be able to be replaced by removal of the wheel and then the fender liner. One on each side, low and high tone.

Are you sure both yours are working correctly?

When I added supertones on my Passat I just tapped into the existing feed to trigger the relay and left everything else intact. No issues in 2+ years, keep it simple.
