i remember seeing a foglight write-up somewhere but can't remember which one. From my experience if you ever want to unscrew the bolt to replace the bulb make sure to 'soak it in' with WD40 since the fogs are always wahed with salt water etc as soon as you try to turn the screw it breaks because of the rust(happened to me on the convertible).

did I say bolt? yes i did . I meant screw. There is a screw on the bottom that holds the housing for the bulb.

WTF Terry? With all the problems you had hooking up bavarski's (RIP) foglights you should be an expert at it already!

Check:
bulbs
fuses
relay
switch
corroded wiring
