SOURCE: fuel pump on Daewoo Lanos 1.3
If my memory serves me right the Lanos has an immersed pump, and therefor you need to be looking either under the rear seats or in the luggage compartment for a round metal or plastic cover which when removed will uncover the top of the pump and fuel sender unit.
It is probably held in place by a large plastic or metal ring which either has to be unscrewed or just turned slightly to disengage the securing lugs.
PLEASE DISCONNECT THE BATTERY NEGATIVE TERMINAL BEFORE MESSING WITH THE PUMP OR YOU MAY HAVE AN EARLY FIREWORKS DISPLAY!!!
Just as a matter of interest, I assume when you say FLUIDS you actually mean FLOODS, in which case, the problem isn't the pump.
If the car doesn't start, or struggles to do so, and there is a smell of fuel or the plugs are getting wet, then the problem is more likely to be a lack of spark than anything else.
There are other scenarios, such as a faulty coolant sensor (cold engine), a faulty O2 sensor (hot engine), a faulty throttle position sensor (hot or cold engine), and a few others I could mention.
If you require any further help, just click ASK ME under my strange white round faced picture (which my MRS reckons looks just like me!!) and I shall be more than happy to assist you further.

Your best choice would be to get a fuel line disconnect tool. I believe
daewoo uses the same type as those used on GM vehicles. Through
personal experience, I recommend being very careful as the plastic
disconnect on the side leading from the fuel tank can be very brittle
and easily break.
Sometimes, there is not enough clearance to use the disconnect tool. You clamp this device around the tube of the fuel filter, and push it up into the fitting on the fuel line. It's purpose is to retract the 4 retaining fingers in the fuel line fitting which are spring loaded radially. These fingers tightly grip a flange on the filter tubing. From my own experience, I had to cut the fuel tubing at the body of the filter with a hacksaw. Then you can see what's going on, and maybe use the disconnect tool. I had to use a plastic sleeve for this purpose that you can buy in a kit at an auto parts store (about $10). Once the retaining fingers are retracted, you can pull the end of the filter tube out of the fuel line fitting. Be prepared to yank, pull, push, swear, curse, and maybe cry and pray. If you're lucky, the rest of the fuel filter tube will come out, you won't break anything, and your marriage will still be intact.
Good luck (remember rated this help).
