    citroen c4 foggies

    hi, well as i didnt want to pay vaux prices for 2 foggies for my gsi front bumper (wish i did now), i ordered 2 for a citroen c4 as i was told they were exactly the same. foggies arrived today and yes, they fit spot on in the bumper. its the wiring thats the issue.

    i have the loom etc. as my old prodrive bumper had front fogs, but i need to know what to buy/do in order to connect the new foglight bulb to the blue plug on the foggy loom. do i cut the blue plug off completely and 'extend the wires to the bulb? or do i have to buy a special clip to put on the bulb, then wire up to this? electrics really arent my thing


    ps. its the sri turbo loom, but want to wire to gsi fogs. so isnt just a straight forward plug to plug fit

    i reccomend giving haynes brothers a call they might have the plug to fit the fogs with wire so you can join them to the wiring loom.

    To wire up the GSi fog lamps you need to buy the adaptor harnesses from Vauxhall, they are about £4 each and have the correct plugs on each end. I hope the C4 lights have the same plug as a gsi light.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    ....OR cut the plug off and fit bullets (or other similar connectors) to either end - certainly cheaper than paying for 2 adaptor harnesses.

    after looking at the wiring harnesses on my local vauxhalls computer and ordering them, it seems that i will still have issues with the wiring as my new foggies dont have anywhere for a plug to go into. so im guessing that they must be wired directly onto the back of the bulb (like a headlight bulb) on the foggies that i have bought. so im going to go the scrappy tomorrow, and have a mooch to see if theres anything there with the plugs that i need. god i love electrics!

    and yes, i do regret not buying the gm ones now!

    there is no plug area on the back of the standard gm ones either, its the bulbs them selves that have a plastic socket that the plug of the loom goes into...bulbs kinda look like these.....

    aha that would explain it then! so i'll go back tomorrow and tell them i need 2 of these bulb adaptors too then! was quoted £164 for 2 gm foglights, and up to now have spent £70 on my fogs and wiring harnesses. so unless the 2 bulb adaptors cost over £94 then its actually worked out welll for me. first time for everything! thanks a lot

    well after a bit of a frustrating weekend not being able to find any H11 bulbs in any shops, i ended up ordering a pair of H11 bulbs off the ebay. arrived today, so it was time to see if the plan had worked... yes! slotted into my c4 foggies beautifully and my wiring harnesses plugged into the h11's perfectly! i'll put some pics up later, so total cost for the fogs was:

    2 x citroen c4 foggies = £58.50 off ebay
    2 x gsi foglight harnesses = £12 from vauxhall
    2 x H11 bulbs = £8 off the ebay
    total cost = £78.50 ( bear in mind that 1 gsi foglight is £82 from vaux! )

    ill put some links up later of where to get the stuff from. thanks a lot for the help!
