It's pretty straightforward. Remove the belt, remove the two hoses and put the fittings in bags to keep dirt out, unbolt it - assembly is the reverse of disassembly, but leave the belt off at first. When it is mounted and the hoses are back on, add Honda power steering fluid (do not add any power steering fluid that does not say it is Honda compatible!) to top up the reservoir. Rock the pulley about a turn each direction to flush the bubbles at the ends of the hoses to the reservoir, then turn the pulley counterclockwise by hand a few turns to be sure it is working smoothly. If the steering still moans when you are done you will have to bleed air out of the rack by jacking up the front end, starting the engine and turning the steering wheel end to end a dozen times or more. Honda racks are a pain to bleed so be persistent.
