Installing the front fog lamp switch in the cabin
I have ordered a genuine second hand front fog lamp in cabin switch taken from a Grand Vitara (the switch should be the same) and it's on its way.
Now the question is how remove the dummy blank from the dash board which is currently in the place of the switch? I do not want to damage the dash board with some harsh removal attempts involving screwdrivers or knives etc.
The blank which I need to remove the middle one in this switch cluster in the picture:
Should the required wiring (cables and connector) already be inside after I remove the blank? The vehicle was made in 2012.
Also, how to install the switch - do I just press it inside and it will "clip"?
I have half a wooden peg which I ground the end to a chisel sharpness that I use.........as well as various "special" tools.

No need to remove the frame around this switch cluster or touch the remaining two switches?
I suppose that the connector with the wires should be accessible after I remove the blanking?
After connecting the new switch, I just push it in the hole until it snaps into place?

Just thinking out loud but it looks like the three come as a unit. I'd get an endoscope up there for a looksee.
