05 Accord V6 (Auto) O-Ring Replacement

Hey guys,

I have a 05 Accord V6 (Automatic), and I just performed the O-ring (orange) change following the TSB. The problem is after replacing the o-ring, I start the car and let the car idle and the groan/whine is still there when I turn the wheel. I went for a drive and there was no groan, after parking my car, the groan/whine (although not as loud) is still there when I turn the wheel all the way at max.

After the 10 minute drive, I checked the reservoir and there were some bubbles (fluid level is fine). Should I use a turkey baster and siphon some of the old fluid out and replace with Honda PS fluid?

Hopefully some of you guys could chime in and help me out.

TIA!

This may not be the source of the problem, I would recommend a fluid swap anyway if you are past 20,000 miles on the fluid.
In addition to soaking the oring in PS fluid overnight(or whenever, remove the PS hose nearest your front headlight. it will be a ***** to remove. I've found that location drains the tank, anything above the tank, and the cooler. If there is still fluid you can remove, do so. Fill up fresh(after reconnecting the lines) and oring in place. See how the fresh fluid goes.

still want to know where the poor power steering filter is.
