I went to the dealer because when I turn the steering wheel all the way to the left or right there is a lock. They told me I need to change steering fluid. I am suspicious. What do you think?
It's a 2013 exl polot

Two bottles of Honda PS fluid is around $10. A turkey baster at the dollar store is $1.
15 minutes of your time is free.

It’s worth a try.

I have never had a power steering system knock before and I’ve had lots of system issues on it their vehicles. I doubt changing the fluid would resolved it. I know lots a vehicles on far older fluid.

If you do decide to change the fluid I would recommend dropping a line to drain instead of a turkey baster technique.

Grease the steering wheel spline shaft-pull the telescoping wheel all the way out and get down into the driver's foot well and pack it-then extend/retract the telescoping wheel a few times, give it a try and report back.
