    daewoo racer steering hard? you sure. If you are young then please hit the gym. This cars steering is very softly geared already, once the car is creeping I could literally palm the steering of a daewoo racer.

    I would suggest you first check the entire alignment.

    firstly if you use the original 155 tyres the steering will return to original softness, you should also make sure that the camber is correct and the ball joints are not worn out. The steering gearing ratio is already very high which causes the steering to be soft.

    If you do want power steering in your car then why not go for the complete original hydraulic power steering - there are two shops on Tariq Road who have the entire setup including the pump which mounts on the block and the entire steering rack.

    Tyres are ALLOW rims with the size of 175/R13-14 i dunno about RIM but size is 175. and for how much can i get this job done from tariq road? and also mention the shop names. and i also have a ISSUE of its GEAR box. its very difficult to change gears.. GEARS jaga pe betthey nahi hain. i mean when i CHANGE the gear from 1 to 2 .. sometimes 4th lagjata hai even though meine 2nd hi lagaya tha :/

    Can i get its GEAR BOX changed to normal one with reserve on the FAR RIGHT side? If yes then how much would it cost me?

    well - they are called alloy and not ALLOW rims, and you should know that you cannot simply bolt on any sort of wheel to a daewoo racer, it needs hubcentric rims (the load on your cars wheel is not on the bolts holding it its on the hub snout. If you install wider rims or even wrong offset you will have a very very hard steering as the wheel geometry becomes garbage and you will end up with a car that has a turning radius of the moon itself.

    The gearbox problem you have is not the gearbox itself, but you need to replace all the bushings of the selector lever, Any mechanic who does Daewoo repairs will fix it, If you go to Tariq Road ask for the Daewoo mechanic - they will guide you correctly.

    And please throw away any wrong "ALLOW" rims that you have - the results are disastrous if the wheel loosens itself (and if its not hubcentric it WILL LOOSEN ITSELF) - Match the offset with the original steel wheels that came with your car and inspect the mounting face too, if its not flat and flush you will also overheat the wheel bearings and brakes.

    lol faheem seems like your car has a lot of issues . I'd say just get an EPS instead of hydraulic, too much of a hassle. As for the gear box, you're gonna need to see the shift forks, must be grinded.

    nah the ZF brand gearbox this car has is very heavy duty, the shift forks nearly never wear out unless its run with zero gear oil for a long time, the weak link is the gear selector lever and its corresponding arms outside the gearbox. My VW Golf was also set like that, requires a careful hand with a lathe and a stick of teflon to make all the bushings. All 10 of them.

    first inspect your entire suspension and see the wheel offset which is stamped onto the wheels themselves, compare to the spare wheel you have in the boot.

    the number you are looking for is ETxx - see both and post here.

    Sir it is also stated that we can use 175-70-R13 in our woo's other than 155-80-R13 whats you take on that?

    4 yrs old thread,

    the wider tyres are usable - but with correct wheels only - wheels should be selected according to the technical requirements and not looks and vanity.

    Sir i have woo in completelt stock state.The original engine was G15SF 1.5L SOHC TBI engine imported in Pakistan as taxi scheme..Later models were not introduced and thus cielo/nexia parts started arriving via torkham(kabuli) G15MF (having MPFI) system,,G16Sf(Lemans/nexia) 1.6L SFI engine.In twin cities there are many woos with stock engine.

    Stock woo has no EPS,it can be upgraded using cielo EPS assebly.Also adding the all the engines stated above are bolt on with no modifications required in chassis.

    People generally swap other engines due to scarce parts and mechanics unavailability.Daewoo should be kept as stock as possible.Swapping other engines are not advised as it effects the integrity of chassis as well as car's balance

    mechanics usually change the engine because they do not usually use 9,13,15,19,24 and 32mm tools - hence they never buy them. Daewoo Racer has all of them, its a very very very simple engine and extremely easy to work on.

    Problem in Pakistan is that if a mechanic sees that he cannot understand it and make some money in 5 minutes then "bhai injun badli kardo" - that makes them a lot of money initially and also guarantees future income as the owner will need to visit him back every week of his life with the car. You can however buy the rack and pump from scrap and then install it - it fits between the timing belt cover cavity on the block directly. The power assisted rack is geared lower for quick turn.


    Daewoo Racer in taxi form never came with power steering and honestly it never needed it, The steering rack ratio is pretty nice and the car is very easy maneuverable due to that. The problem starts when someone installs stupid wheels on it and also installs junked or welded up shitty parts in the suspension and CV joint area.
