Both of the horns will be located directly behind the front bumper, it may be accessed by raising the vehicle or you may need to remove the front bumper to access the horns.

Thank you. I will look for the horns as described. Is it likely that just the low-note horn is defective? Do you have any thoughts as to why the dealership wanted to replace the entire system for $500? Might a $25 horn do the trick?

Most likely just to make money honestly. The horn system is fairly simple. The circuit contains a fuse, a relay and the horn switch on the steering wheel. If the horns still work and only the low note has failed than none of those components would be at fault which only leaves wiring and the horns themselves.
