There are several ways to fix the brake noise. You can take your rotors and get them "turned" or you can simply buy the lubricant they sell for brakes. If its the wheel making the noise it will more then likely be the bearing. And that unfortunately usually has to be pressed in, but once in a while the hub will have bolts and you can replace the whole thin, bearing included. Hope this helps.

There is a grating feeling in the steering wheel when I turn the wheel. It was hardly noticeable at first but it is slowly getting worse. Could the road humps near where I live have knocked something loose...

Grating sounds like brakes, the brakes have shields at the front and they sometimes bend inwards contacting the brake disc, get under neath and ensure that nothing is touching the back side of the brake discs.

other thing it could be a wheel bearing on its way out although this is a constant noise like a berrrring noise.

if it is a knocking then that will be the ball joint, the other possiblity is bottom suspension arm bushes, these would cause this noise if bad enough, try pushing your foot against the front wheels facing forward with the wheels straight, if the wheel has excessive play either forward or back then thats the fault.

Hope this helps

ABS Light on constant & Handbrake Icon flashes and makes noise

Have a code scan done. Most lightly problem is one of the wheel sensors is faulty or dirty from brake dust. As for the noise, check brake pad wear on all 4 wheels

Weird noise in front of car

How would changing the rear pads fix a noise in the front? Take the front wheels off and look for excess rust on the discs or grit in or on the pads. It sounds like you might be competent enough to take the calipers off (it's not very hard). If the noise gets louder with speed, it could very well be the bearings. This is much harder to do yourself (yay FWD), and you might want to get it towed so you don't damage the hubs, etc. Just shaking the wheel probably isn't enough to diagnose bad bearings.
