Hi, can anyone help with a small problem!
We have a bulb gone indication light come on on the dash of our 2009 Swift Bolero. All lights ok but cannot see a fog light coming on, so assume it’s the F/light bulb blown. How do you get the lens cover off to change the bulb? The whole cluster turns round but the lens cover will not come off. I guess it must unclip somehow but I don’t want to break the lens as we are off on a trip in a couple of days. Any body changed a bulb lately?

I suspect the whole of the grey light cluster has to come off and the bulb is accessed from behind.
If there is no access to fixings/screws from behind, you may have to remove trim panels etc, then it must pull out.

Just looked again....
Look upwards from the bottom between the two little tags, there may be a small slot between them for a screwdriver blade...insert and twist.....the lens may pop off.

Just found this on the net. Don’t know if it helps? It’s from a Swift handbook. Needs magnifying to read it (Second column, half way down.

Did you try it with the headlamps on? they have to be on before the foglight will light....
just a thought.

Had trouble with my lights a short time ago.

This is what I found on inspection. There was absolutely no insulation on any of the wiring loom since manufacture. Shoddy workmanship and no stage inspections on assembly it seems.

Glad you've got it sorted.
