    Been covered loads of times.

    2 bulbs, only 1 works. EU requirement, it's to make it more obvious that it's a foglight and not a brake light. The second bulb is a spare, there's no wiring for it.

    What Parapaul says is true, there are 2 fog lights but only 1 works, second one is spare, this can be seen on user manual.

    IMO, rear fogs are more dangerous than they are worth, as a huge proportion of people don't know how to use them properly, causing rear dazzle and not seeing the intensity change when brake lights come on. I have seen muppets driving with foglights on, with cars behind them or in about a mile visibility completely unaware that they are ***** who should read the highway code for the correct usage of said lights.

    Really is a bugbear of mine.

    Really ? would never have guessed LOL

    Well, I tend to agree. There are far too many drivers using them when there is no need, front ones too for that matter.

    Ditto, no excuse on most cars as the lights are reset every time the ignition is turned off, the front fog brigade are more of a wind up though imo.

    If you would like both rear high intensity to function just run a wire from the correct h/i contact in the conector block in the one that does work under the boot floor to the other lamp housing conector block hi contact, and then there were two!!!
