Default Best Sources Online for Used Toyota Camry Parts?

Our '95 wagon needs at least a low-tone horn - it's making a weak,
high pitched beep instead of the normal tone. I see little reason to pay
the price for a new horn for a 15 year old car if I can find a good used
one. Ebay has nothing at the moment. So what are the best online salvage
yards?

I replaced the horns on our '96 with these:

"http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=40134"

I did a very nice installation under the hood on the right (passenger
side) above the right front wheel well.

If you don't want that, you can get universal high or low horns
inexpensively at any auto parts store.

www.pickyourpart.com is one. Maybe it's generic enough that off any
car will work?? I think $2-3 bucks to get in.

Didn't realize there is a selection at HF. The old fashioned "Ooga"
Horn sounds interesting.

However, rockauto.com has the following for about $15.50 plus
shipping. There are two types, low and high tones:

I'd really like to get OEM, if only so it will attach using the
exact same mounts and connectors. I put a nice loud aftermarket horn on
my motorcycle, which had a weak OEM unit, but the Camry comes with
perfectly adequate horns...

One used horn, pretty funny. Why do you think they fail, because they
are exposed to weather, used is just asking for junk. I just bought
new at an auto store they fit right in, they are so cheap I would
never consider used, and what a waste of time. Can you only afford one
9$ horn, buy a pair, splurge for once.

Sure, the HN-16T or HN-15T was meant for the Camry and not just
generic, but for cheaper OEM probably call your local
PickYourPart.com.

That company seems to be based in Ca., but I get the idea. I was
hoping to find either good used ones from outside the Rust Belt, or OEM
ones that some dealer realizes will never sell for $120 a set...

The original link you gave for the NH-16T was for the enlarged image
without the description - I didn't realize it was a direct-fit unit.
I've ordered a set of high and low horns from RockAuto, and may get a
reman rear wiper motor from them as well. Thanks.

Did you try jumping 12 volts to the horn? What is there to go wrong
with a horn? Check the wiring and grounds to the horn.
