During cold starts in the winter here in the Northeast, this sounds like the power steering pump

Does this mean its about to give up? When the car is warm, the sound goes away. I changed my PS fluid in the summer.

Might be air in the PS system. Use OEM PS fluid. Could try changing the two inexpensive O-rings before going further
I did use OEM Honda fluid. Which two O-rings? I wish to tackle it myself.

Thanks!

Get the new orange o-ring. Here's a live video which includes part number.

thanks all! This should solve the issue, going to the dealer for two O-rings tomorrow (total $3).
My PS reservoir is extremely frothy. Only issue I see is accessing bolt on the the low pressure hose. Can't even see it.

I got the two o rings from the dealership. The high pressure side was obviously a breeze but can’t for the life of me locate where the bolt is for the lower pressure hose.

Any help would be appreciated, I looked and look and don’t even see a bolt anywhere.
Engine is the same as this video but doesn’t show how he took off the bolt

Nice! Thanks finally got to it. Good thing I have ‘small hands’. Changed out both o rings. Still have a wine noise when cold. I’ll have to drive around for a few days to see if it fixes the issue.

Great! Yeah, you have to turn your wheels end to end several times and drive it around a while to quiet it down.
