    Coupe fog lights

    Drivers side fog light on my coupe hasnt been working since i bought it. not found many on ebay. and the ones i do find seem to be very expensive. can anyone recommend a place to get one from? Ive been to my local breakers and they dont have cars that new, and the only mk4's they have are hatch's.

    Any recommendations?


    Thanks
    Shaun

    Not just the bulb Shaun or a bad connection?

    Never seen anything like that before, can't even think whats in there to cause that

    All I can suggest is to keep a eye on the forsale section and ebay for one to come up

    They are always going to be expensive because only coupe ones will fit coupe bumpers

    That gold bit looks to be the top of the reflector bowl.. which has popped of it's mountings. I had the same thing on my orignal hatch bumper fogs.

    I remember that id did mange to get it back on the mountings using some fencing wire through the hole at the bottom where the bulb goes... it was a blind fumble mixed with a smidgen of luck. It's worth a go, as you've lost nothing if it comes to nought

    The water in there is the sign of another problem tho, but it might just be the rubber cover missing off the bottom

    has anyone answered where you could find a new fog light. I have a similar problem but mine has just got a smashed plastic lens. I cannot find them anywhere, does anyone know where I could find Astra G Coupe front fog lights?

    I wonder if the putting in oven at 80 to soften glue up to open works on fogs aswell as headlights... might be worth a try?
