#124535 Fiesta Mk 7 Front Fog Light And Rear Reflector Change Guide

Posted by Chris Ecc on 27 April 2011 - 10:52 AM

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.
