Fitting front fog lights

Fitting.......

Engine bay area,

Start off by removing the blanking plates where the lights fit into,these need a firm push 'in the way' as they are retained by strong retaining clips.

Fit foglights using the previously purchased screws,3 each side,two at top and one underneath.Note there is a slight gap around the lights this is normal.

Next mount your 4-pin relay (or 5 pin in which case just ignore the center terminal 87a) to any suitable place (I mount it next to battery fuse box) and connect as follows.......

Terminal 85 to battery earth.Remember you will also need a earth wire going to each foglight aswell so connect these to battery now & using loom tape,tape these up to the live wires going to the foglight (from terminal 87)...keep things looking neat and hidden,its worth spending the extra time making it look good/safer than a quick rush/bodge job!

Terminal 87 goes to the foglights.I crimp the live to left & right fog light into the same blue insulated spade terminal and use loom tape to follow the original wiring loom as it passes over the radiator to the drivers side headlight,keep it neat & hidden away and obviously away from sharp edges/moving parts etc Black wiring (14 gauge) is obviously best as its harder to see thus again looks neater & more professional.

Fuse (20amp) both the left and right foglight wires as near to terminal 87 of the relay as possible,dont forget as these fuses protect the wiring from relay to lights,it is more than likely that if a problem (short circuit) occurs it will be here and it will be a 'dead short' straight from battery to earth!

At the lights themselves are two small spade terminals this is where the red uninsulated speaker spade terminals come in.Crimp these terminals to both the earth and the supply (from relay terminal 87) wires and slip on.I use a small amount of heatshrink as the red terminals are uninsulated by a small piece of black tape should surfice around each...obviously you dont want them to touch...thats why you fitted 20amp fuses to each of the foglight supplies.

Terminal 30 to the positive battery terminal,via a ring terminal,fuse this wire with a 25amp in-line blade fuse.

Terminal 86 go into the car to the fog on/off switch inside the car,do this as follows...

Remove 2 screws on passenger side scuttle panel,if you look in you will see a large rubber grommet in the bulkhead...carefully put a small hole at top (above wires using a awl or similar,remember you are only passing one thin wire through) to make a small hole & pass at least 4 foot of black 14 gauge (from relay terminal 86) cable through,carefully not to pierce/damage any of the existing wires of the main loom going through this grommet,also use a little black sealant afterwards to prevent water penetration.
(n.b.I just pass the wire between the scuttle panel and bulkhead but put a little tubing to protect it)

The white line in the pic below shows route of wire going inside car & posistion of bulkhead rubber grommet under scuttle panel.

Re: Fitting front fog lights

I need to replace my front fog light (smashed it on a kerb ).
Your guide is very useful T14086 - but I'm not 100% sure if it's just as simple as unscrewing the old and plugging in the new. Can you clarify please?

Re: Fitting front fog lights

Nice one, thanks...I'll have a look at the weekend and give it a go
One more question (and I know I could go and have a look but it's dark!) - do I need a special screwdriver? If so, what sort is it please?

Cheers

Re: Fitting front fog lights

Can you please clarify. If your car is not already fitted with front Fog Lights. are there mounts on the bumper when you remove the little black covers? Just when I went to Fiat and asked them about it they said, no. Then tried to say your would need a new bumper, Yeah right! RIGHT?

Re: Fitting front fog lights

The mounts are on the fog lamp brackets there is no separate inserts or mounting plates needed..

there is a Hole above the foglamp hole and 2 on the bottom of the bumper with a 3rd hole to adjust the beam angle with an 8mm nut runner.



you can just see the lower fitting bolts in this picture:
