    Mk5 astra design diesel rear fog lights

    Hi. I have a 1.7CDTI Astra design diesel (05 reg). It is now due for its mot, but i have noticed that the n/s rear fog light is not working. The bulb is fine as I tried it on the other side and it worked. I read somewhere on this site that the n/s rear fog light is not wired up, and was wondering if this was true or not? If its not wired up, I presume it will still pass its mot? Any help appreciated..

    yeah the n/s fog light is not wired up.

    by law if you have only got one rear fog light it must be on the right hand side,

    also if you only have one rear reversing light it should be on the left.

    I got annoyed at this fact so i wired up the 2nd fog light

    but as for MOT it will pass aslong as your foggy on the right is all good.

    HTH

    Thanks for your reply. The car passed its mot this morning. A bit lazy from Vauxhall not wiring it up. Will probably wire it up myself too as it looks better with 2 fog lights working.

    Following on from this - I checked mine and yes, I only have 1 rear fog light when they're on. How do you wire up the second one? I presume there's already a bulb in it?
