Rear bearing

I would be checking first for a seized brake at that wheel as defective bearings normally will still turn by hand and when driven as you describe the noise would be a pronounced grumble. Whining noises occur when driven as you describe because the spider gears in the diff are straight cut and will make a noise when one wheel is spinning and that makes them work

My steering wheel is heavy and when i turn the wheel it makes a lot of noise, theres also noise coming from somewhere in the front of the car as I accelerate. The battery light on the dash is on.

1996 ford contour loud humming noise and vibration from front wheels

You have a defective wheel bearing most likely, the noise sounds correct for that problem. have a shop drive it before you replace anything to confirm my guess.

Banging noiseunder the driver rearwheel while pressing on the accelerator

You have been able to narrow it down to a suspension/drivetrain issue, now it is most likely 1 of 2 things. Since you say it is on left rear wheel, odds are you are looking at a wheel bearing, usually this makes more of a light grinding noise. Either way, it can be checked. Lift vehicle up so that the tire is barely off the ground. Grab a hold of the tire and wiggle it up and down, left and right. This should make no noise at all. If it does, you need to replace wheel bearings. 2nd option is it is one of the u joints in the drive shaft. crawl underneath with the wheels blocked, and shake the drive shaft. It is normal for it to move toward the transmission but not normal for it to move up and down, side to side. once again, when you move it, you may hear a clunk, this means the needle bearings inside of the u-joint caps are toast.

Broken wedged break pad? Wheel bearing? Try taking the wheel off and inspecting the brakes. If all is well, remove breaks and see if wheel turns.

Vehical makes noise from the power steering, but

Try to bleed all air from the power steering system:raise the front of the vehicle off the ground just until the tires are off the ground,start the engine,make sure the fluid is at the proper level,while engine is idleing turn the steering wheel from lock to lock in both directions( do not hold at full lock for more than a second) repeatedly,at a average turning speed back and forth about 10 to 15 times,shut engine off, lower vehicle,check fluid level once again,take out for test drive for at least 10 to 15 minutes,if noise is still present then it's time to replace the power steering pump.Good luck!

Very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only

you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.
