    Default Rear Fog Lamp Problem???

    Hi All, Have now picked up the motor and on doing a quick once around I
    noticed that the rear nearside Fog Lamp was not working.

    My question is this, is this a fault or is it only the offside thats wired up.

    The bulb is fine but did not want to assume it was supposed to work as
    I have owned another car which from the outside appeared to have two
    Fogs but only one wired from standard.

    Thought I would ask as have never owned a Vectra before and don't fancy
    removing the trim to find a wire fault if I don't have to.

    many thanks in advance

    Now that was quick thanks alot guys, I'm real glad I asked, one other thing is that my Headlights appear to be different, ie one appears to be slightly smoked the other is very clear.

    Is this a result of someone replacing a unit with a custom one or is it from a car of a different year.
