One of my front fog lights got smashed whilst driving; damage looked like it was a stone so I set out to change it myself regardless of Ford calling them an unserviceable part!

Prices
I originally searched ebay and found a wide variety for varying prices (£10-40) so I thought I'd give my local fraud dealer a call and they quoted me £69.99 for the light! :lol: I ended up putting the part number into ebay and found one for £10 from a scrappy and got that. The P/N is 2N1115201AB, it was advertised as a Focus Light but they are the same.

Bulbs
I decided seeing as I was replacing the light unit I would get some new bulbs for my fogs, I went for LED bulbs so that they better matched the color temperature on my HIDS. The light output is worse but I prefer the overall look. The bulbs are H11 and I went for these

Fitting
The best way to get to the Fog Lights is to remove the headlamp then you can just lean in and removed the units/change the bulbs. The units are held in my two screws, could be torx but I just used some allen keys until I found the correct size. The bulbs twist 90 degrees to be removed from the units if you just want to change the bulbs.

Rear Reflector
I also had the rear reflector smashed on my Fez a few months back so got a new one of them; got it from Fraud as it was only about £10. They are very easy to replace just get underneath the car squeeze your hand in and you'll find it secured by two self tapping screws; one in the middle and one right behind where the wheel is. Hopefully these pictures will explain a little better.

Had exactly the same thing happen to my fog light! So thanks for the part number and advice, will be looking into that straight away :)
You get a laminated windscreen, plastic headlamp casing, and on the bits closest to the road?...thick glass!

Nice choice of LED's too, many LED "fog"lights I see look cheap, and a candle would make more light, Those look pretty bright though :)

LED fog lights bulbs look really good.

Where did you get them from?

I burst out laughing on the phone to Ford when they quoted me a price, I informed them I could get one for a tenner and they tried telling me how I definably won't be able to remove them without jacking up the car, etc

I got them off eBay mate, they are quite bright because of the large number of LED's, I have the same style for my sidelights and they are brilliant. The link to ebay is; Dammit 25% off at the moment too!

Thanks for the link Chris! Can I use the same ones also for the sidelights?

No you'll need different ones for the sidelights; the ones I'd recommend are these 13 LED style <--They are the ones I've got as they give off quite alot of light with there being 13 LEDS, unfortunately the seller is Hong Kong based but if you buy from a site such as Powerbulbs you will have to pay 10x more for them. I got mine from that seller and they came in about 2 weeks.

Sidelight On - Gives a white glow which looks amazing, especially with HIDS

Sidelight Off - Just to show what it looks like when the LED is off

I also put a smaller version of these bulbs in my Number Plate Lights (The 13 LED size don't fit, think its 9 LED i've got in there not too sure)
LED on Left, Standard Bulb on Right gives you an idea of the color temperature
