2 bulb, 3 wire fog/parking light for 1990 Nissan 300zx fairlady... I need one!!
My driver front fog/parking light has a 2 bulb, 3 wire set-up and I need to find a replacement fixture for my passenger front as it's only a 1 bulb fixture so the fog light works only when those are engaged but when I turn on full lights when driving, the light goes out due to having only 1 bulb. This has been a huge headache to find so PLEASE help me!! lol

You may be having an over heating issue. If it has a rattle noise coming from the engine then it may be overheating. It may also be a timing issue. Check into both of these and see if you cant find the problem. Hope this helps. Good luck.
Take out the small screws that hold your turn signal/marker lights on. This will allow you to reach in and undo the three (if I remember right) 10mm nuts on the back of the fog housings that hold them in the bumper. Once they're removed, press on the back of the fog housing and the foglight assembly will pop out of the bumper. Then you can replace the bulbs.
What I did on my Z is something you might consider - while I had them out, I took them apart (just a couple screws and bolts, very easy). Open it up so that you have access to the glare guard - the cup that sits in front of the bulb. This blocks forward projection of the light, and instead bounces it onto the reflector to be spread very wide (but not far forward) in a fog beam pattern. I used pliers to physically break the guard off the housing, so that instead of a wide, shallow fog pattern, I had a forward-projecting driving beam. I also swapped the 35w OEM bulbs for 55w higher-output superwhite bulbs (this increase in power consumption is not enough to cause any risk to the wiring or fusing, by the way - it worked for years for me). Then put them back together and reinstall them - you'll find a drastically improved light pattern for night driving, and they're still low enough to the road to cut under most fog. Especially since I always felt that the Z headlights were pretty pathetic for output (at least until I installed HID lighting), this was a great mod to make to the car.
