Rear fog light

Post by BrianAustin » Thu Dec 06, 2018 3:24 pm

Only the offside rhd wired up with a bulb is the near side live if I put a bulb and holder in it, as I feel safer with two especially when driving in France where your on the wrong side of the road. TIA.

Hi Brian. I would be very very very careful before you experiment with anything on the electrics (unless you are a qualified auto-electrician). Modern systems are extremely complex and sensitive. You could easily trigger fault codes and warnings on all manner of unrelated things. Your dealer would no doubt be able to re-set and rectify but it wouldn't be covered by the warranty! 30 years ago I would happily wire in a set of spot lights triggered by a relay from the high beam. Now I would hesitate to even change a battery.

Hi Brian - did you go ahead and put the other fog lamp in? I determined that both sides are active, as I need to move the light from the left to the right for Australia. Now looking at putting both in, but searching for the right globe holder has been difficult. Plenty of VW ones, not sure if they will fit?
