installed a new front fog light to my '94

Postby Brake buster » Thu Feb 15, 2018 4:47 pm

i am a bit fussy about my lighting, it all has to work and look good all the time,

i had already fitted a new front fog to the near side soon after buying her, but when i turned on the lights the new one was ' whiter ' then the other one, but hey ho ,

so , when the off side one stopped working a month ago , i decided to buy another new unit from Jaguar, these come in at £89 each , and are still available ,

fitting is a bit fiddly , on the 1994 XJ40 ,

firstly the front bumper mounting bolts need removing, then the bumper pulling forward a few inches, this allows a long thin flat blade screwdriver to access the top two quarter turn fixings, then from under the shaped stash guard on the end needs removing to access the single lower fixing and plug ,

this can be done without jacking up the car , when removed i found the usual problem of a broken lamp holder to the back of the fog light, so needed a new one anyway

all fitted back together and looking good

does anyone know if LED lamps can be fitted and dont interfere with the lamp failure module, which monitors the front fogs
