320 CLK (1998) Stiff Power Steering on Startup

I have a stiff steering wheel when I just start the car, especially when it is cold. I also have a whining sound that changes pitch when I rev the engine up. As the engine warms up the steering gets softer. I have search the forum for similar simptoms but have not had any luck. I'm thinking its the steering pump going out....does anyone have details on how to replace? Any help is appreciated.
