One of mine (I think it was the low pitch) was replaced under warranty last fall on my 2014. The bumper cover needs to come off to gain access. FYI. See if you are still in warranty (4 years and 50,000 miles). Maybe if you're close to the warranty date, they will "good will" the repair. Worth asking, and even elevating to PCNA with a claim number if not happy with dealership's response. Good luck. Not uncommon failure.

Sure, its very accessible after removal of the front bumper cover. If you decide to do it or have the dealer do it, I also suggest you buy the Rennline Grills. After the bumper cover is removed, the grill install took me less than 10 minutes.

Contrary to some opinions you do NOT need to remove the bumper cover. On my 2013 Carrera there are 5 torx screws that fasten the bumper to the body underneath, remove those and pull down the bumper cover to reach in and disconnect the wiring by squeezing the rocker clip on top. Then use a ratchet with long extension to remove the nut holding the horn bracket to the body. Thats it, very simple really. You can see and even access the horns (if your hands are small enough) thru the square holes under the bumper cover at each horn location.
I found however the part number on my car for the low tone horn is #991 635 150 01 and has apparently been superceded to # 991 635 160 01 but the electrical plug in is completely different and incompatible with my wiring. I'm still doing recon to find the right part or adapter? to work.

Update: Adapter Part # 991 612 947 00 has plug at both ends to adapt to updated horn
Horns are now working and LOUD!

Do you know which frequency horn goes on which side for a 2013 991? My right side horn (passenger side) is not working, is the right side the high or low freq.?
