all the suzis are very easy to do except for the sx4, all the 800, baleno, esteem and the swift have the same type of layouting for the speedo.. and always remember to change only the bulbs with the caps... as the others are for the warninf and tell tale lights.... so be carefull..... and happy lighting.

Yes, there is only one bulb. You have to just cover it with something blue and it will blend well with the speedo!
Don't try the condom trick or get some of those XXtra thick types.

Very careful with the tell tale lights. They should not be touched. Leave them alone as it is!
