See pictures for removal. You will need to drain anti freeze far enough to remove it and do not use power discs or hard wire brushes to clean gasket surfaces. Install is reverse of removal.

You should replaced the gasket drain enough fluid so it won't leak when parts are off, like a gallon or so should do it.

Heck to see if all air is out of cooling system it may have some causing the temp to go up/down, the whining may be the alternator making noise I can't hear it so can't really give diagnosis on that. Here are bleed instructions make sure to fill degas bottle prior to bleeding and after see pics.
