Rebuilding Honda power steering pumps isn’t that difficult but it comes with a warning, it might not work out. I had a heck of a time with this one. In the end the fix was to just replace it. You might consider that option if you have a noisy pump. However, the rebuild kit is very affordable and if you have the time and inclination, I think it’s worth a shot.
This video features my 2001 Honda Odyssey but this same pump was used on a variety of Honda and Acura vehicles from 1998-2002. In fact I think there are only a few differences between this pump and the generation before it.
Lastly I’ll say that I strongly recommend you only use Honda fluid. Use of other fluids can cause issues.
