Question about Cars & Trucks
The power steering fluid emptied in a matter of seconds, I am now trying to access the power steering assembly but find I have to dismantle the front end to get to it. There must be an easier way to access it

The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

SOURCE: power steering fluid leaking.
With the engine switched off. Go under the car and clean of all the fluid you find. Now start the car and turn the steering wheel from full lock to full lock. Switch off the engine and go under the car and you should see the area of the fluid leek. With this information you can then decide how to tackle the repair.

SOURCE: Windshield washers not working
I wouldn't worry about tracing the hose just yet, most likely it's a bad pump. Find the wire(s) going to the pump, usually on the bottom of the reservoir and connect a test light to a good ground. Then have someone try to 'squirt' the washer fluid while you touch the test light 'probe' to the pump's wire connector. If it lights but no fluid squirts, it's bad. They are cheap and usually very easy to replace. If it doesn't light there's a brake in the circuit somewhere. (bad fuse, bad connector, etc.) Good luck.

the suspect part for a power steering whine is the power steering pump, flush (very important) the system and replace the PS pump..
