Welcome to FerrariLife. Sorry, we're not a 24/24 Ferrari Hotline
It's a very simple fix. The clips which are holding the airbox are loose and need to be reajusted. If you're not familiar with removing the airbag, just ask your dealer to do the 10min. job.

Let us know how it goes

Thanks alot for reply. I didn't touch it without asking first because I don't want my face to be redecorated by airbag explosion. BOOM!

BTW stef. How do you know so much abt the lady in the red?

Unfortunately here in dubai the dealer is not as professional,quick and easy. And I can't trust other garadges.

Done!
after removing the airbag part. The holders under it must be fixed. If you keep a couple of mms distance between the airbag and alluminium/fiber part of the wheel you wont have noise on idle.
2 problems solved. (out of many) hehe
