    Default Back fog lights for M.O.T?? Help please

    Hi, I have a 2003 vectra sri which is due in for its m.o.t in the morning, I was checking the back lights and noticed that i only have 1 fog light on at the right side as you look at the back. I put a new bulb in but it still doesnt work (the old bulb looked fine too) I take it Its meant to have 2 rear fogs?? I dont have a manual so i cant check, Any help/advice would be a big help, if its not a fog then i dont know what that lights for as its the same level as the other side, Thanks in advance

    p,s is this a failure on m.o.t?

    Vehicle : Vectra C Hatch

    Trim : Exclusive Plus Pack

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi Z19DTH

    Year : 57

    Mileage : 100k+

    Default

    Some other makes only have the offside one - and a single reversing light on the nearside. It seems mad that they supply the Vectra with fittings (and even the bulbs) on both sides but only the wiring loom for one side. So as soon as you go onto the continent it's all wrong. Brilliant! Mine is now wired up to both sides.
