Evo Sporting Fog Lights HELP

Hi there, Iím hoping someone on this forum can help.
I took delivery of my new Punto Evo Sporting a couple of weeks ago now and I am loving it, however one thing really is puzzling me!
Where is the switch for the front fog lights?
In the manual it states that it should be located above the switch for the rear fog light, but above the rear fog light switch on my car is simply a blank switch.
The Fiat brochure states that the sporting model comes with front fog lights with adaptive cornering lights as standard.
The adaptive cornering lights work as they are switched on via the on-board computer menu system. So how on earth are the fog lights switched on when there appears to be no switch for them???
Is this a mistake on my car or does the Sporting Evo not in actual fact come with front fog lights (although it does have the adaptive cornering lights which apparently come with the fog lights)??


Any ideas or help welcome.

Yup, should be there... Silly question but, I assume you've got foglights ?

I do wonder what kinda PDI Check List fiat dealers must have cause they really do seem to miss alot considering its ment to be a fine-tooth comb to make sure everythings there/working & no damage etc.

Yes, according to the Fiat brochure etc. they should come as standard also there are fog lights fitted on the font of the car and the adaptive cornering feature works on them and can be switched on via the on-board menu system, just seems to be the switch thatís missing!

Strange to say the least. Unless they have put in the panel from the lower spec car which has no front fogs.
