Title: Front fog light bulb
Post by: Dr Muse on March 16, 2012, 10:47:11 PM
MY first problem with this galaxy is that the OSF foglight isn't working, its been wired to wig-wag flash opposite to the main headlights and they are all working fine so I think its just a bulb out. Should there be a warning for this? How do I get to the back of the foglight to change the bulb?

It will help to put car on a full left hand lock for ease of access.
Remove the screws from the lower edge of the wheel arch liner pull out enough to reveal rear of lamp, just twist the cap to remove then unplug the bulb, release clip to remove , note the bulb has a tag that locates in a slot make sure new bulb is correctly located.

I see a lot of people popping the front cover off and trying to remove the foglight from the front - having played extensively with the front fog lights (I now have cornering lights instead) I can Chris's way is the simplest! It may look like the fog lights will come out from the front but its not designed to and only comes out one way and backwards :D

Will give that a go thanks - have got a set of LED bulbs coming instead so they wont need to be replaced again and as its never going on the road or in fog it makes no difference as long as they flash  :P
