280ce power steering issues

I have a 280ce with m110 engine fitted and the problem is this.
From a cold start the steering is very notchy and squeals like the belt is slipping.
It feels as if the fluid level is low but when warmed up the noise is very minimal and almost goes away this is only at low speeds and when parking etc.on the road it is fine and the power steering works perfectly well.
The fluid level is normal and the belt doesn't feel particularly loose.
Does it sound like the pump it's self could be bad.
Any help appreciated.

I'd start out with a fluid and filter change.
