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:)

Megane coupe 1999 rear fog indicator comes on when brakes pressed, fogs don't work or high level brake light.


I have the similar problem with my 2000 model. On mine I have narrowed it down to the rear light cluster on the right as you look at it from the rear (drivers side in the UK). Here's how I fix mine, although it does keep happening every now and again:
Remove the lights cover from inside the boot, it is held in place by a couple of plastic nuts.
Remove the strip of lights that are clipped into place.
There is an electrical connector block attached to the now removed light cluster. Undo this and the whole set of lights will be free.
Where the connector block fits to the light cluster clean all of the terminals. I use one of my wifes nail emery boards.
Make sure the female connectors on the connector block are all fairly snug so when put back together it is a tight fit.
Clean with electrical contact cleaner if you have any (not really necessary but I had some anyway).
Reconnect the block and test your lights, put back together.
I suspect it is an earth fault but I ran a separate earth to the unit but it didn't improve.
Other faults I noticed is the rear wiper operates when the front one only is on and I touch the brakes. Also when I lock the car when the indicators flash to show it is locked the rear high level brake lights flash as well. I was thinking of trying another light cluster, but 25 pounds from a breakers yard seems a little steep for a minor irritation.

Rear fog light not working.2004 toyota rav4


I guess that your refering to the backup lights? They have their own fuse and aren't imune to having the bulbs burnt out. The bulbs are easiest to check as they may be black in color or knocked out of their holders. The back up light switch is part of the neutral start switch and they will have other problems like no start if it's bad. wiring and their plugs are also possible mainly if the car as been in an accident or other bending action.

Hi where is the rear fog light switch on an n reg lucida cheers


It can be absolutely anywhere. Rear fogs are not required in Japan, and the Lucida was a Japanese-only model. When they get exported outside Japan to territories like UK/Europe where rear fog lights are compulsory the importer or retailer usually just fits a cheap rear fog light kit and mounts the switch almost anywhere as long as there is a warning light visible to the driver.

Better quality conversions will replace the Lucida's lighting stalk with the one fitted to the Previa; this has a rotating collar which acts as the fog light switch and sometimes the job is done even more properly and the instrument binnacle from a Previa is also fitted. This then means that the warning light is with the other instruments as per a Previa and if you're in the UK/Republic of Ireland the speedo in is mph.

Location of fuel filter on a 2001 audi tt quattro


On a 2001 Audi TT Quattro the fuel filter is located forward of the fuel tank, in the right rear wheel well area. The fuel line clamps are a bit tricky. The change will improve performance. The owners manual does not even list changing the filter. But do it! use a Fram, and it fit perfectly. Good luck.
