W108 Rear Fog Light

Post by RHD108 » Tue 06 Feb, 2018 11:05 am

Does anyone know exactly where the rear fog light single wire plugs into the tail light? My headlight switch has the green dot on it which I'm told lights up when the rear fog light is on.

I believe the Australian delivered cars (right-hand drive vehicles) have their rear fog light on the right-side. Left-hand drive cars have it on the left-hand taillight.

tbh I'm entirely sure what your question is. Are you asking which lens has the fog light or are you asking about the wire to the switch?

When you compare the left-hand and right-hand taillights, the right-hand side should have one extra lamp.
That'll be the rear fog light on a right-hand-drive car.
