Wow, yet another post and NO YEAR CAR, is this a disease here?
nor a VIN (that has year,coded)
lesson one, all things are indexed by year, all cars , all parts, all !
Maruti = MaruthY? huh? in India are you, just a hint.//???
my guess is you are replacing the cam timing belt.
and have no book to show you.
well ,suzuki sells that book called and FSM (call them and ask)
Sr. "do you have the factory service manual on this car...".?????
buy one and read. step by step it is all there.
and if you get it wrong, on most DOHC engines the head valve bend.
$1000 damage. (parts and labor my state)
or more if head is destroyed., or pistons beat to death..
no country stated, we dont have F8s here. in USA.
do not guess, get the instructions and win.
also here in USA we have Gates belts. and are TOP quality
and come with instructions in the box, so buy GATES.
this link only works in uSA> so google for yours.
buy a quality belt with instructions
or buy the expensive book.
for choice 3 google all day oh F8 cam belts.
i see interference pop up , oops
read them, then ask any questions on any step here, would be glad to elaborate any details.

hi im not sure on this particular model but there a few easy ways to check.... take the spark plugs out, remove the broken belt, shine a light down the holes and look for dammdge, if you cant see anything you can turn the crank but it is a tricky job because you can ruin the engine so if your unsure get a mechanic to do it.. or your other alternative is to remove the head and have a look but you will need a new head gasket kit, timing belt and tensioner kit etc .. it is important that you do not turn the engine over when the belt is disconected in any way UNTIL you know for sure that valves wont hit pistons, even bending a valve will not be very noticable but when its all back together you will deffinately notice and will have to pull it all back apart
