Front fogs



  • my front fogs aren't working! is there a fuse or relay somewhere that may of failed?

    thanks for your help
    m



  • have you got your lights on when checking them?? :lol: they wont come on with out side lights.



  • :shock: :lol: it may say newbie but I'm not that mad. lol

    all the the lights were on as well as the engine, but sadly nothing from the front fogs.

    so is there a relay I should be looking for? :?



  • sorry mate, just thought it might be something simple, not sure where the fuse is



  • no worries mate, would have been nice if it was that simple tho. lol
    I've now got another problem with lights; they point the wrong way! going to have a look tomorrow.



  • so you are saying that the fog lights work now but they are pointed at the ground? there is a philips screw or allen (depending where you are located) that lets you adjust the light up and down.



  • sorry mate, its my bad english! lol
    my fogs still have no life in them. But my headlights are pointing to the right instead of the left ie, frenchy stylie…
    I can adjust up and down but the screw for left and right is just spinning in its housing on both!



  • this happened to mine with the ones i got from a scrappy. in side the housing where the screw goes is like a star fish looking things. ( not sure on name but get drift. either that has come loose and needs greasing etc or like mine its cracked. find some scrapper with lights dead and just remove the part. simple as one screw.



  • that's just what I was thinking.

    hope its that simple :D

    I found today that when I took off the lamp/bulb cover you could move the whole assembly back and forth! so I guess your right I need a little something in there to fix.
    silly question how do you get the headlights off the car? I've found 3 bolts, two on the top and one at the front nearest the bonnet catch! am I missing something? do I have to take the bumper off?



  • you are correct have to drop the entire bumper! bolts are under wings under bumper. and three stupid plastic thngs underside in middle of bumper. then have fun getting around the brackets by the lights lol

    this is required to take out the single bolt that olds a Z bracket to back of light. bit over the top i say.



  • thanks for that its made my day lol :D
    now I just need a free weekend to play



  • i had real trouble trying to find replacement bulbs for my fogs, in the end i ripped out the fog lights, and converted them to indicators!



  • got a small update..
    looks like the burk who had the car before me just unscrewed the adjuster! so I just took the lamp out stuck two fingers in as far as they'd go. then grabbed the reflector and then tightened it up!

    so that's one job done… :D

    that's a good idea with the indi's down there. but at the mo I'd like to get the fogs working



  • Check all your fuses.
    Check with a multimeter to see if they are getting any power to them.
    Have a look on a wiring diagram to see what else is on the circuit.



  • all fuses are good, so I'm still thinking its a duff relay somewhere! just can't find it.
    if anyone knows where its ment to be I'd be greatfull.



  • have you tryed the switch it might be faulty?
