This can be attrbuted to a case of no adequate belt tension. Check and tighten the belt. See if the problem persists and then change the belt.

Default Re: Baleno - Power Steering heavy when AC is on.

Has anyone tried to change the PS in the Baleno to a manual one for power gains? How difficult is it to do this? Hopefully this would improve the steering feedback too.

There would not be any noticeable power gain by just converting to a manual.

Regarding steering feedback, yes, it will be improved, along with your biceps ,aided by loads of understeer at high speeds.

The way i look at it, it would reduce some weight and since its a HPS, it would slightly improve performance. I used to have fun in my manual steering Zen, but the Baleno feels disconnected when compared to the experience i used to have in my Zen.

So is it doable? if so how?

P.S I already have decent rubber.
