Thank you.

Pull off the top plastic cowling and see if it still happens. If it does disconnect the battery and pull out the airbag then check the nut inside is tight

Will do, thanks!
How do you disconnect the battery BTW?

There's a big torx head screw under the airbag. I suspect that's loose.
It looks like this.

Disconnect the battery, then press in the brake pedal for 20 seconds to make sure it's fully drained.
This guide shows how to remove the airbag.

And obviously, make sure you've got a big torx head socket before you start (I think it's a T50). If it's not the screw then it may be the column bearing.
