The horn itself is mounted in the front of the engine bay by the lights. Fairly easy to remove, and you can see if it is filled with mud that can be cleaned out. If not, you've done half the work of replacing it at that point.

PIAA dual tone horns are a nice replacement to the stock horn, FYI

Im on my third horn... They are positioned downward which allows a alot of mud to get in there. I just buy the 10$ ones. I should post a video of what it sounds like, if i were to beep behind you, you would laugh more than getting mad.

If / when you replace the horn, here is a little tip.

When I replaced my lights, I had to pull the horn. The horn is mounted with a small nut (10mm if I recall) on the inside of the mounting bracket with virtually no clearance. Trying to remove it with a wrench without dropping it was a pain. Finding it in a gravel driveway afterwards was tedious. When reinstalling, I realized that the bracket is sufficiently flimsy so as to allow it to be bent inwards towards the engine compartment. I was able to get my fat fingers in there with no problem once it was bent. Seems disgustingly obvious in hindsight but live and learn.

Just use finger!!!
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by its clean end!

I didn't know the stock horn could blow any more quietly.
