My 300E did that and it required the replacement of a flexible coupling on the drive shaft. Not sure what the coupling is called. When I first noticed it was on slowing to a stop I could feel more than hear it. Went to the mechanic and he diagnosed it and said I could probably drive it for a while that usually the noise gets gradually worse. He warned me of catastrophic failure and said he'd recommend repair ASAP. I waited 3-4 months until it popped almost every time I slowed.
