Behind passenger side headlight down below I believer as mentioned.

Believe there is actually two horns side by side, if one goes out the tone will sound like crap.

The horns are below the right (passenger) side headlight assembly. Your best access is to remove the headlight assembly and the horns will be very easy to work on. Disconnect one at a time to test which one is out. Most likely, it will be the one on the bottom as that is the one that gets wet the most. Replacement horns from the dealer aren' t too bad, but be prepared to change the wiring connector. The new horn usually has the parts needed but you can expect to do some cutting and splicing. Soldering is best, but crimp connectors wrapped in electrical tape will last several years or more (I'm going on 3 years with that route).
GM now makes a baffle cap for the horns, they just clip over the opening and are very good at keeping water out. Price is under $10 as I recall. I've got one on the bottom horn, but haven't done the top one and I've been fine for years. Before that, I was loosing the bottom horn about once a year.
