Sound macam coming from steering rack.

Front driveshaft is applicable for FWD, but W204 is rear wheel drive. Steering rack (whole unit) consists of tie rods connecting near the wheel. Worth checking that.

a random suggestion would be to check the power steering fluid level.... if its low, it does sometimes do this. Also check if the power steering hoses are leaking (mine did this when it was leaking.)
