Plastic rattling in engine bay when stopped

Hello everyone, have any of you experienced a plastic rattling sound coming from the engine compartment every time you stop (for example at the crossing)? It happens exclusively when the direction is engaged, either D or R. The sound reacts to the movement of the steering wheel. If the car stops with the steering wheel straight or turned to the left, nothing happens. However, if I stop with the steering wheel turned to the right in various positions, the sound is always heard. But as soon as I turn the steering wheel a little after the stop, the sound disappears. As soon as I put the transmission in park mode, the sound also disappears. So far, I've only been to BMW authorized service with it and there they confirmed that they also hear it but don't know how to deal with it. In the youtube video, the sound can be heard intermittently almost the entire time, but it is strongest at 00:45-00:52. Ideally listen on headphones. Thanks a lot for your opinion.
