Whining noise coming from front end?

Does anyone else hearing a whining noise coming from the front end while driving on the highway. When I accelerate its fine and then when I'm driving about 50-60 and left go of the gas and let it roll i hear a whining noise coming from the front end of my C300. Anyone else with the same issue?

I found a DTB about "howling " noises coming from the drivetrain area. It can be corrected by installing a clip(000-994-29-60) on the transmission shift rod

I didn't get a chance to bring my car in the dealership yet for it, but its like a whinning/howling noise. I think its coming from the wind between the mirror cracks i'm not sure. Anyone else have any ideas what it could be? It might with the 2008 models because of the folding mirrors. What do you guys think?

Hi there,
I have a 2008 C230 4MATIC and I get the same whinning noise which seems in the front end. Sometimes when I initally start driving. But mostly when I let my foot off the gas, around the same speed as you.
I am going to to bring my car in and have it checked.

Brought my car in on Friday and Mercedes said they cannot find a problem with the car. I took it home and Saturday through to today, same thing whinning noise, now more often. Today started the car, made a right turn and there is the sound. I am bringing the car in on Wednesday and leaving it with Mercedes until they find the problem an fix it. I don't care if it takes them a week, I am not taking it back until they find the problem and make the repair.

What is DTB, i just want to know what I'm talking about when I go back to the dealer, I already had the dealer look at it and apparently they can't replicate the noise.
