    had to plumb a fog light on for mot, as the last one decided to come of the bracket and disapear (left with two wires hanging.)
    so i got hold of a rear window brake light (this one was from a ford mondeo) that happened to fit almost perfectly into the rear bumper (slight modding needed.)
    just thought i would put the picture up as i know some of you guys/girls had them set in the bumper.
    but most imports just tend to have the fog hanging under the bumper looking s**t.

    yeah they are supposed to, whether they do or not depends on how thorough the chap is at doin his job. for example when i came to put this fog in it did'nt work, so i followed the wires back to find they did'nt go anywhere. not even close to the fog switch???

    if the bulb is ok could be a break in the wire or maybe switch or fuse

    fuse may well be the problem, wherever that is.
    i know the switch works as the light comes on(on the switch).

    If the light comes on on the switch then you need to check the wires at the other end to see if there is a current coming through.

    I suppose you know that already buddy;)

    Yeah, i knew theres power to the switch, but after that, it goes wrong, looks like the fog has been botched on at the chassis.

    Looks a little too big for me... and how come you didn't just use the rear garnish lights on the boot lid that where mine are on my 6...

    They are not a requirement in the JDM but are in Europe and the Americas etc.

    It is the easiest and cheapest way to get them fitted in the bumper or below it for the MOT prior to registration being granted as kits are readily available.
