Default Whining while turning

When I turn my wheels I hear a loud whining comming from the car. I'm pretty sure its the power steering pump and my question is, is it time to replace it? If so it looks like a nightmare to do

its pretty simple to replace it, take off the belt and about 3 bolts i believe
replace and do the process in reverse

Put something down because that fluid is a mess waiting to happen.

Well I fixed the problem. All it needed was more fluid. I also ran it for a bit and checked to make sure the fluid level stayed the same and wasn't leaking and its not. Thanks for your guys help and thank god I don't need a pump.

The pstump isn't a problem.

It's just messy. It's a quick and fairly easy fix.
Give me that over a starter any day.
