Steering wheel horn/airbag vibration noise

When turning the steering wheel airbag/horn (circle thing in the center of the steering wheel) vibrates. Can this be fixed or will my airbag go off unexpectedly if I mess with it? Help appreciated.

Take it in, better safe than sorry. Airbags may fall under an extended warrant based on safety.

I had the same issue. My dealer took it for a test drive and noticed the vibration. Replaced the part with a wrangler they had in stock. No more vibration
