Halogen bulbs are brighter and generally draw more current than standard filament ones.
Have you check that the supply fuse has not popped ?

Fog lights don't work new bulbs


If they worked before you put in the new bulbs and not after, you may have blown the fuses. The fuses are for a 55 Watt halogen bulb. Many people replace them with 100 watt bulbs which blow the two fuses. Replace the 7.5 amp fuses with 10 amp fuses, but nothing bigger or you could damage the wiring if you get a short.

How to replace the fog light?


Do you need to replace the whole light assembly, or just the bulb? If it the bulb, The lens cover will be screwed on. Remove the screws, pull or twist the old bulb out, and install the new. TIP- do not touch the bulb with your hands, use gloves or clean rag to put it in. The oil on your hands will creat a "hot spot" and burn the bulb out quicker. (especially halogen bulbs)

The right ''driving'' lamp burned out. How do I replace it?


LOOK INSIDE THE ENGINE BAY BEHIND THE HEADLIGHT, THERE IS MOST PROBABLY A RUBBER COVER WITH THE LIGHT WIRES GOING INTO IT, THERE WILL BE A PLASTIC PLUG WHICH THOSE WIRES CONNECT TO AND THE PLUG THEN IS CONNECTED TO THE HALOGEN LIGHT BULB.
REMOVE THE PLUG AND THE RUBBER COVER WHICH WILL EXPOSE THE REAR OF THE LIGHT, YOU MAY NOTICE THE 3 PRONGS AT THE REAR OF THE HALOGEN BULB, THERE ARE 2 SPRING TYPE WIRES THAT YOU HAVE TO PRESS DOWN AND PULL TOWARDS THE CENTRE TO ALLOW IT TO BE REMOVED, ONCE THEY ARE LOOSENED YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE THE BULB AND REPLACE IT WITH THE NEW ONE BUT DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB WITH YOUR FINGERS AS THE BULB MAY BLOW WHEN YOU TURN THE LIGHTS ON
CHECK THE WATTS ON THE SIDE OF THE OLD BULB AND MAKE SURE THE NEW BULB HAS THE SAME WATTS
REPLACE IN REVERSE ORDER TO REMOVAL

Bulb wont come out of fitting


Do you have a NEW bulb? The bulb assy 'twists' out (counterclockwise) and a new bulb 'twists' in (clockwise). Each bulb has a connector to it. Remove the connector, twist out the old bulb, twist in the new one, and reconnect the connector.25d2850.jpg
