It is the oil pump, it is most likely caught in the oil pan's internal baffle- try to find a way to move the pan forward, or backward, or whichever way it won't move to clear it- you might have to undo the motor mounts and slightly lift the drivetrain- this might get you around removing the engine-

Lol. You need to remove the gearbox there are 3 screws which you'll only get access when you remove the gearbox
