I joined the automotive India for only one reason to congrats you for having such a wonderful car and please tell me the part number or if you have a photo or model of the clear lens indicators installed in the front of your car. From which car they belong and installing them is a good idea
Power steering unit - Sourced from Alto (old)
It costed me 12k (used one). New one would cost 32k.
The reason behind choosing the alto's PS is it has an separate ECM which controls the PS. The module is easy to connect.
It will have 5 connections, 1. RPM 2. Speed Sensor 3. Ground 4. Positive 5. Ignition (+ve).
Presently I have only connected 4 of them, still sourcing out the Vehicle speed sensor signal on my ECM.
The mods which are required to fit is, need to alter the mounting point of the column, replace the start joint from alto to 800 near the rack.
Make small mount points for the combination switch (stalks) also need to make tow holes for indicator cut off and steering lock.
Though the list is big, the result after fitting it you would not have any words to express. The steering is light and precise. Even with 4 people on board taking the car out of a tight parking is just easy and simple.
This took me whole month to finish it as I would work only 3-4 hours in a week on this. This time its not a full DIY it was done by MASS and with the help of my mechanic.
Thanks to SS80, Joeking, Sri Harsha, Chandrashekar, My mechanic (Ashok), Solotech MASS and every one for getting this done.
I have to redo all the electrical's and add new wires to all the accessories I had.
If any one would require the wiring diagram please pm or email me.
Any B'lore members could take a test drive and post a review here. I would be happy to hear the comments / suggestions.
