Question about 1999 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Headlmp ajustment It's the single bulb design w/no foglight. I replaced the bulb, but there was another bulb holder beside it where I guess the fog lamp bulb would go if i had that. It was a brass looking metal prong with a rounded ball at the end. Resembles a game piece from the game 'Sorry". This piece appears to have held the chrome reflective plastic piece that makes up the headlamp into place. How can I get that thing back into it's slot properly??

    Maybe I need to state that I'm not an idiot- besides it UNSCREWED. Yes, I tried screwing it back into place- that's where the problem arose from. I can't get it to just screw back into place. I was wondering if there was some "trick" to getting the damn thing back into place.

Renault scenic front foglight bulb


I found the easiest way to change the fog light bulb is to take bumper off, takes 5 mins, 5/6 screws/clips across the top were the bonnet meets the bumper and a few clips on wheel arches then pull off and 2 spot lights very easy to Accra.

Verona 2005 fog lights won't work. Fuses are ok, lightbulbs are ok. Fog light switch lites.


Remove the entire foglight assembly check for a loose wire inside the assembly. I had the same problem on mine but it only affected one of the foglights. Also check with a test light at the connector where it connects into the foglight assembly. Also make sure foglight bulbs are properlly tighted.

Fog lights do not work on a 1999 9-3 SAAB. no blown fuses and not power at fog light connector, looking for a schematic.


I had same problem in my 1995 saab900,
the fog light contains a bulb and two cables (ground and hot).
the ground cable connects to the bulb base by a connector, this connector collects salt because of the high current and humidity I guess, which made inconductive.
Just cutting the connector and solder the cable directly to the bulb base solved the problem.

the schema is like that:
1- foglight switch give low current to a relay under the hood.
in the same time the switch will get current from the normal ligth so it wont work untill you put the lights on.
2- the current goes from to the relay makes the relay connects the fuse current (from battery via fuse) to the ligts directly.
so the connection is straight forward.

the components involved are:
1- fog light switch.
2- fuse inside the car on the left side of the stearing wheel.
3- fuse under the hood to the top right side of the engine if you look at it from the car front.
4- in the same fuse box under the hood there is a samll relay.
5- cables takes the current from the relay to the foglights.
6- the fog lights have a connection at the back, and connection inside.

make sure you measure each points with a multimeter and in doubt make temporary cables like ground directly to the battery to make sure you don't miss anything.
good luck and email me if you still have problem

Changing factory installed foglight bulbs on 2008 elntra


Your 2008 Elantra fog lamps are probably still under warranty. Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership) or call the nearest one. Give them your vehicle VIN and ask them if the fog lamps are still under warranty. If they are, they will replace them for FREE!

99 A4 tali light assmbly missing top bulb passenger side


That's the rear foglight socket. The rear foglight idea is European, and they ship the Audi over with a rear foglight as well, but it's only on the driver's side (that's the way rear fogs are done in Europe). That socket is fully powered though, and wired to the same dash switch as the driver's side rear fog. What you can do (what I did on my 99 A4) was to use a drill and **** out the rectangular opening in the rear taillight panel, and then put a bulb in that socket. Voila, instant dual rear fogs.

This is a good idea because in Europe, the police understand that a rear fog is only on one side. In the US, our police don't always know that, and you may get pulled over if you have that on - they may think you have a blown taillight bulb. Do the dual fog mod as described above - it'll save you the hassle and it looks better too.

I have a UK registed, Feb 2000 AUDI A6 2.7T QUATTRO AUTO ESTATE, Is it right that these are fitted with just one rear fog light that operates and the other is just for show.


Yes it's true. What I did on my US-spec A4 is to pull back the trunk lining on the passenger (right) side, where there is no functional foglight (my rear fog from the factory is on the left side). What I found was that the "bulb tree" has a fully powered socket for a bulb that would fit into a rear foglight on that side, but no bulb was installed. The part of the taillamp that would have a hole for such a fog bulb had a **** instead. I used a drill to widen the **** into a hole large enough for a bulb, and installed a bulb in the bulb tree, and voila - dual rear fogs:)
