Renault Scenic I - Airbag (mechanism) noise.*Fixed*

For the last couple of days I've had a strange noise from near to the passenger airbag.
It sounds like a worm drive slipping against a jammed mechanism (or a tape mechanism that is stuck).
The noise occurs when the ignition is switched on (even with the engine off), and doesn't stop until the ignition is switched off.
I think that it may be the airbag self check system going into a (fault) loop.
I really don't want to take the megane into a dealer, so any tips / ideas would be welcome.
It's a '97 LHD Megane Scenic.
