Steering Wheel/Horn rattle...

Hi guys, well this is my first post and im very proud to own a 2001 X5 4.4i E53 here in australia. It has done 169000kms and is going in for her first service at a BMW dealer in a long long time according to her service booklet. Im a little scared at what they will say but it is what it is. I'll get a list of things to fix and i'll do it all myself!

anyway onto my first annoying issue:
when i drive over bumps and whatnot in the road, espcially small one and lots of them...the horn in my sports steering wheel seems to move up and down a little bit and hence hits the frame of surrounding parts of the steering wheel and hence 'rattles'.
does anyone else find this happens to them, or have i got a small part broken in my steering wheel?

thanks for your help

I had what sounds similar in my 2001 4.8. Mine was under warranty, so I don't know the cost to repair, but it was a broken plastic piece under the horn button. I got the car back in a couple of hours (and they were doing some other things) so I don't think it was too big o a deal.
