    Default front fog lamp question

    Is it normal for the front fogs on a face lift sri to wobble?

    My ones seem to be secured at the bottom ok but the top seems loose

    Not sure if this will help you, but this is how they are fitted to an XP2/VXR, so I imagine they may be similar.........

    From what I could see from below no it didn't look like that.

    On my one it doesn't have that plastic around the back, I can get my hand up and grab the hole light unit.
    It feels like it should maybe clip in at the top?

    One bracket at the top, two at the bottom.

    Sounds like your top one has let go. You may be able to weld it with a soldering iron - I did. Easier to get at / remove the light with the bumper off

    Mine is held onto the bumper with 3 bolts. Two at the top, and one at the bottom. I can just about reach the bolts on mine (2.2 Elite) with a flexible shaft between an 8mm socket (I think that's the size) and rachet with the bumper still in place.

    Hmmm - maybe I got the top / bottom ratio mixed up, but it's definately 3 bolts, and far, far easier to pull the bumper - I've done it both ways.

    It might be one on top, and two down the bottom. Can't remember. Long time ago since I tightened them up because they were both loose.
