I have a Plus 2.
How do you get at the compressor for the horn to top up the oil? I hope you don't have to take the bonnet off.

It depends where the compressor is fitted, if you have a narrow radiator it is probably mounted to one of the side pieces (left hand side).

Should be very easy to spot, if not find the air horns in the nose of the car and track the airline back until you hit the compressor (a big cylinder type thing).
