Touareg 2004 V10 Power Steering Pump replacement

Hi,
First of all I`m sorry for my first post on this forum to be a question instead of giving good replies to other Touareg owners. I don`t know if I`ve posted in the correct place, if not please correct me. But please help me, i really need your help.
I recently bought a V10 Touareg from 2004. I`ve always wanted to drive such car but more...to feel that wonder engine. But depending on your answer that will make difference between keeping it or sell it because of the problem it has which i can`t afford to repair.
So, my power steering is whining and steering wheel is quite hard to move especially at low speeds. I`ve checked the fluid, no leaks but very dirty and not green, not red, but brown. Seems the previous owner didn`t know and refilled with Dextron instead of VW fluid. I`ve made a flush and refilled with VW specified fluid but...no result. Same whinning and same hard steering.
Normally I should prepare for a Power Steering Pump. I`ve checked the prices, is not expensive at all (~200 euros).
And now the question is: TO BE ABLE TO REPLACE THE P/S PUMP, DO I MUST REMOVE THE V10 ENGINE? Is there any other way or tehnique to be able to reach the pump and remove it?
Please help me. Cause if there isn`t any other solution, I`m doomed. The costs for such repairs are enormous and i can`t afford. Plus, a V10 engine removed I`ll have all chances to not work anymore like before according to the abilities of our "mechanics"
Please help me!

I`m from Romania. I`m proud to be one of the few, maybe the only one that managed to rebuild by myself an american V8 350 small block. And I might take the risk to do the german style. All by myself, i relly love Touareg and especially the mighty V10

I've seen how resourceful some of you guys can be but I am wondering if it might be best to break the car for parts to get some money back

No, i will do it, as I said. Breaking apart a car just to save some money is the coward way. The history repeats in my case. Therefore I will do it in the german style, if you can help me with some useful manuals, i will be thankfull. I`m passionate of this car and that push me forward to take the risk. I will not leave it to any "mechanic" and i will work as hard as i did it before with the american car.

Fair enough! I'll wish you all the best with getting it sorted.

You can buy an hour's time on this VW site to download everything you may need for your specific car.

Don't forget to tell us how the job goes with some photos too, please.

I know you only need to remove the engine, but this is the famous "Frex thread" which may help.

The only chance you might have is if you take the entire front bumper off. Note: you should realize that I have no hands-on experience with that engine. I do know due to space constraints that everything V10 is complicated. This is literally a super car engine. As you have already noticed, there is no real working space.

If you pull the engine, there is a list of things you should do before you put it back in. Ask the V10 guys if you go that route.

Plus, I have linked a thread for you.

The pump is on the right front of the engine. It is driven by the gear system on the front of the engine and the back side is connected to the AC compressor. I’ve never had an issue with either so I can’t comment on whether pulling the bumper and core support will give you access but I think it would be tight at the engine cradle is right there. I doubt it will help but I will throw this out there...

I had an issue where the steering was heavy and found that replacing the fluid in the reservoir 4 times and driving in an open lot from full left to full right several times on each reservoir siphon cured the problem. My work for you, may not. A lot easier than anything else that has been suggested.

Also pulling the engine is not the terrible job that people who have never done it say it is. Look on line and there are ideas for doing it with and without a lift. A little bit of planning will save a few headaches and as you get into the job you will feel more confident about what you are doing...
