Power steering noise normal?

Hi there,

I recently bought a HR-V and yesterday I noticed that when I turn the wheel when the car is parked with the engine running, I can hear a very soft noise in the car that is not really disturbing but i'm not sure if its normal.

It sounds like someone is regularly knocking on the bottom of the car very softly.

Is this the normal operation of the powersteering or mechanics?

have you gone back to the dealer that sold you it to see what they can do?
^ Yup that is key. Is it's low it's possible there's a leak. Just be thankful it's a new car and something the dealer will have to figure out.
Hi there,

Thanks for all your help!

I was on holiday this week, my HR-v had a temporary engine check error P0171 but that was maybe because I changed the air filter with a very cheap one that looked a bit different from the original one?

I checked the steering fluid and it seems to be okay, a bit more than low level...

Today I replaced the oil and filter and was able to look at the steering mechanism, I noticed that there was greasy gray stuff in the area around the steering parts on the driver side, it had also greased up the dynamo, anyone know what it could be? It is not steering fluid i think because that looks pretty thin to me, not like the thick gray grease I saw...

On monday I will take it to the place that sold it to me, see what they have to say.

Any update on this?
