Actually now I look a little closer this states H8 for front fogs. This is a late 2010 guide so might depend on the year of your car!!!!

H11 for front fogs. w5w for side lights. H7 for dipped beam. H1 for main beam. Should all be in your manual.
See page 71 here for bulb specs:

I've just seen that same video on YouTube and that noise coming from the mondeo is EXACTLY the same as the one from my old skoda!
Btw the vw/skoda/Audi/seat group has such a good reputation but my old Octavia was nothing but trouble. 2008 1.9 tdi which I had from 55k to 95k. The air con would empty itself every 4-6 months. I refilled it 4 times in 2 years of ownership. No one could ever find a leak even with dye added to system. Front suspension always knocked as front drop links seemed to be made out of paper mâché... I renewed them 3 times...Add to that the "mooing" which cost £150 to fix but returned after a year, as well as headlight bulbs that blew every few months I was glad to get rid!

Cheers Gadge
Since my post I have asked my mechanic (independent ford specialist) and he says same as you though recommends it being done earlier than the 125k ... Better around 80-90k
He also says that the belt that is submerged in oil is a real pig of a job to change and many garages "overlook" this part of the job due to its difficulty!
I guess I will get it done in another year or two!

For a quick going over if car not too dirty I have found that Demon Shine does a good job too. At the start of last summer I gave it a good wax by hand then just kept it topped up with Demon Shine. Sprays on and wipes off!
