    Check the power steering belt tension and alternator belt tension.

    The belt may be glazed and needing replacement.
    Perhaps better to change it and not risk it breaking at a bad time.
    (when is a "good" time for a belt to break??? ) ;-)

    If the (unknown) Honda is a first generation CR-V, it might be the idler
    pulley for the AC. http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/tsb/crv/x00-003e.pdf

    I've replaced two of them.

    As I turn into my driveway on a warm spring day when the wife's car is
    there so I can drive to the dealer for a replacement and the dealer is
    open and has the correct part in stock and I have the right tools and a
    good picture in the instruction manual and I'm not hung over from the
    night before.
    Ahh! Those were good times! bob

    Accessory drive belt would be my first guess.
