Hello

if you have a grinding noise under braking then I'd suggest the next step is to check the levels of all the pads and also the condition of the wheel bearings

as the ABS light can be caused by a faulty bearing allowing the hub to hit the sensor so jack the car up so the wheel is off the ground (you’ll need to do this for all 4 corners) and shake the tyre from top to bottom and from side to side (with someone holding the steering wheel on the front) there should be no play in either direction. Any play in 1 direction will usually require a joint to be replaced, if there’s play in both directions then the wheel bearing may be at fault
