Does it sound like its keeping pace with engine rpm? If so could be worn belt or idler pulley going bad.


Hard to diagnose without hearing the "weird loud noise"- better take it to the MB weird loud noise specialist

Sounds like the brakes/rotors were hot, the water cooled them too quickly, and when you had to stop suddenly, you warped the rotors and messed up the pads. Without hearing the noise, I am just taking a guess.
