Jetta: reservoir..a grinding noise and the fluid..power steering pump

Resolved Question:

The power steering fluid reservoir in my 2003 diesel jetta was nearly empty. I filled it with new fluid and now the pump makes a grinding noise and the fluid is foamy. Is the power steering pump shot?

The pump may not be shot the foam is from air in the system start the car and turn the wheel all the way from the left and to right and hold it against the locks for a few seconds on each side. But if the noise persists then you may have a bad pump.
