Help identifying whine : QTronic box or power steering

Hi all,

I just found out that the 159 has a well known issue with a whining power steering, which can be fixed easily by replacing the fluid or the reservoir. My question is, how to identify whether the whine I'm hearing in my car comes from there, or more worryingly from the QTronic box? The whine rises and falls with revs and as such changes when the box changes gear. But then so does the power steering whine apparently.

Can anyone shed any light and help me figure this one out?
