Before you replace the pump, check the filter located inside the oil tank. This filter cleans the oil before going to pump. REMEMBER that Audi uses a special oil!!! Not your normal power steering fluid! Mixing them could cause damage to the entire system!

Check your power steering fluid level. Also inspect for leaks and the condition of the belt that drives the power steering pump. Could be a loose or damaged belt, loss of fluid and air in the system, or you pump might be going.

I agree with iffi, if the pump is whining and not screeching? If the noise is a screeching when turning the steering wheel, you'd be best advised to replace the belt, or try tightening it first....It has to be pretty tight!
If the noise is a whining, the problem would seem to be the bearings in the steering pump....Depending where you are in the world it may be economically viable to replace them or to look for a good second hand pump....

These are real bad about having bad pumps, and bad leaking hoses. Make sure you still have good fluid and no leaks. Most likely it just drained again through a bad hose. If good fluid then pump is bad again. If your steering rack was bad it would be leaking real bad as well.

Wierd Wheel Noises:
New bearing is actually good? Take wheel off of the ground, vehicle in neutral and rotate the wheel by hand and see that there are no problems with the bearing, CV Axle, or the brakes. And put some pressure on the bearing as much as you can to make sure it is not binding itself.
More than one bearing has been damaged during installation. I now own a 10 ton press and keep it in my basement for the next time I have to replace my bearings. Thank goodness I always buy in pairs.
Here's to hoping you just identified your problem.
If not, then: Have someone turn the wheel in both directions while watching the CV Axle at both ends, to make sure it isn't the problem.
One more issue: Swap your tires front to rear, and rear to front, and drive to see if your noise changed locations, indicating a tire or wheel problem.
If everything you just checked is working properly, then you know what's next.
Good luck !
