When the power steering is low it sounds like that. Did you figure it out?

Agreed! That does sound like a power steering pump to me as well. I hit a coyote coming back from Vegas. The little guy just destroyed everything under my car up front on the passenger side. Insurance noticed the impact point and bent plumbing lines and would only replace the lines and not the pump. Soon as I picked my car up I noticed the whine. I eventually replaced the pump myself and noise gone.

Even when the pump is fine, if the power steering fluid is low it will whine.
