Crunching noise when stopped

I have a 2001 SLK320 that makes a strange crunch sound when I come to a complete stop. I'll be sitting at a red light and hear a little crunch or knock....then it will stop....then a few more crunches....then nothing....then more...etc. It sounds like it's coming from the back of the car.

It's almost like something is "settling".

Is this common?

You might want to have your tranny fluids check. My car did that a couple of days before the tranny went. CHECK THE FLUIDS!!!!!!

I've heard a sound like that two or three times. Car was sitting in the garage and when I sat down in it, I heard a crunch or cluck from the rear of the car. I couldn't get it to repeat. Hmmmmm. I only have 4 months left on my factory warranty. I'm going to the dealer tomorrow and will mention it to them and report back any findings.
