Change defect dashlights was created by funny16
Hai friends,

Can somebody tell me how I can change the dashlights behind my knobs 2wd-4wd-4wd/L .
They all are not burning ( as shown on the 'bad' photo , sorry )
They all three are not working. So maybe its a defect cable.
I have the spareparts T5 bulbs from Philips.

I know how to get off the frontpanel, thats not the problem, but after that..what to do?

Maybe somebody have photo's of it??? ( my technical english is not so very good.. :blush: )

Anyway Thanks!

greets

stanny

Is there anything on here about tearing down the dash to change bulbs behind the speedo as well?

Do it right - use Hammerite
When the blue light is flashing I am kidding.

Stanny,
Not sure if you've figured it out but pretty simple, once you've taken the facia off, stick your hand round the back and the housing for the switches can be un-clipped and pushed out. There's 4 clips, 2 at either end, push them in and push the switches forward into the car. Turn housing upside down and unclip the wire. You will 2 brown plastic screws, this is the bulbs, turn it slightly, give a tap and the bulb will come out.

Now only problem as they are not the ones you've a picture of and I've no idea where to get them from other than suzuki no doubt.
