wheel bearing
 
hello there i drive a bmw e46 1999 saloon i have an issue with braking
some times not often i brake at low speed 5 mph and get a grinding noise
the asc light comes on and the brakes dont really work
i know i need a new wheel bearing on the passenger side im wondering whether the wheel bearing would make a difference to the braking system
or could it be some thing else
abs or something similar
thank you

I would say soo too. Metal touching metal in braking does make a rather unsettling sound.
