front fogs

24 posts in this topic

I am thinking of buying a set of fog lights for my 02 reg focus lx they come with everything i need but does anybody know if the wiring loom is already on my car for the fogs to just plug into

All the wiring should be there. Take a quick look under the bumper where the lights should be and you'll be able to see them.

You will also need a new switch for the lights. Don't know what happens about the light on the dash but would imagine it would all be there

gaz you mentioned a light on the dash, as far as im aware the only indicator lamp for the front fogs is on the switch itself? may be wrong though?

I could be wrong but I'm sure you get the orange light for the rears and the green for the fronts.

Thanks for replying

I cant see anything that looks like wires

some people have told me they are clipped on the inside of the wing or tucked up near the radiator but i see nothing

I had a thought though that maybe because fogs were NOT an optional extra on my car (only a zetec and above) they didn`t put the wiring in ????

Thanks again for reading

Oh one last thing does anyone know if you can buy a loom for them ??

Thanks again

Dave

If it wasn't an optional extra then I could see why there may not be a loom there. It's usually cheaper for the manufacture to just have one standard loom across the range, so you would assume the wires would be tucked away somewhere.

If your positive they aren't, then best bet is to go to the local scrapyard and take the wires you need of one there. Or you may be able to buy some sort of kit like the one your buying with the wires included.

back in the day of my mk1 focus I fitted fogs two two cars.

First was a T reg 1.6 and this needed everything, from the extra wire from the light switch to the new loom in the bumper to the lights, messy job as you have to get the the large mulitplug int he bulk head. However when you buy the harness you do get all the info from ford.

Second was a 1.8 W reg Focus this just needed a new light switch and then grill and fogs as wiring was all there,

You will need to check the wiring in your car however if you go to a dealer they can run off the instructions that come with the part,

Just to put a spin on it though I have come across in past when doing someone elses car where they had the loom in the bumper but still needed a single wire run from the bulk head multiplug to the lights witch.

Hope this helps

I just could not wait

it looked so simple i had a go and 1/2 hour later all done and working WHOO HOO

In fact the hardest/most tricky bit was cutting the tape to release the wires oh and one of the fog blanks was a bit tricky

But all screwed in well and it all works BRILLIANT :wub::wub: :)
