How2 - Retro Fit D8 Fog Lights

Post by Gary406 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 8:34 pm

first ov all you will need these few things . (all the wires are allready on your car.)

1. a set of front fog lights (do not forget the "L" shape bracket from the donor car)
2. a indicator stalk with front fog controll .
3. a relay (this is located under the steering wheel behind the fusebox (look right under)
4. x2 10amp fuses (usually these are all ready in ready) check engine bay fuses 12 & 13


Image

Note. there is allready a relay in the relay panel under the steering wheel but you need to add a 2nd one,
the pink and orange arrow shows were both relays need to be. dont forget you only need 1 relay from the donor car because your car will allready have one fitted _ the one allready fitted controlls the rear fog lights.
also note that your relay panel may only have 2 slots and not 4 like in the picture below. dont worry about that .

FITTING :arrowd:
replace your stalk with the new one that has front fog controll. insert the relay under the steering wheel . put the fogs in the bumper - when you put the fogs in the bumper you will see the plug tied up . simply plug it onto your fog and bobs your uncle, job done. its that easy

PS dont forget to check fuses 12 & 13 in the engine bay fuse box beside the battery :mrgreen:

If your unsure or need any more help just send me a message or ask on the forum :mrgreen:

Before you fit the fog lights into the front bumper you need to remore the fog light blanking plates.

1 bolt and a few clips is all that holds them on

Thanks. ive also added your post into it as well. i didnt want to intrude your work by making it look like my own :oops:

hopefully it will help others . because i wanted fogs for 2 years and always thought i would have had to retro fit with my own wires and switches.

its only from you making your original post that made me do it . :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I'm pleased its turned out to be a fairly straight forward mod :)

I'm fitting mine for more athstetic reasons (if thats the word) more than for use, I always assume if a car has front fogs its well specced for some reason and it looks nicer at the front, I probably won't use than more than a handfull of times a year, I know its a mot fail to have them fitted and not wired up

My father in law did that on a Scenic he used to have, he bought front fogs but there was no wiring there but he still fitted them
