    Does anyone know where to find the front fog light wiring connectors for
    retro fitting the fog lights. I have changed the light switch to suit and
    plugged in th fuse and the relay which is working but i cannot trace any
    wires in the front bumper area. The car is a v reg LS diesel hatch.
    Thanks in advance

    Am i looking for a plug or just a single wire Rob and have you done this job
    or are you reasoning that this is where they are.

    done this before you'll find the appropriate plugs tucked up into the loom

    although when i did this it has been on puntos and pugs


    at worst you may require the extension section of the loom that runs from
    the plug on the main loom to the lights themselves ala 206 or if your lucky
    they'll be tapped up into the loiom

    I fitted some on my 95 Vectra and there was no wiring for them - believe me
    I looked everywhere.
    In the end I just fed a wire from the relay to the lights

    If they are there you should find the plugs not just bare wires. Try
    removing the bumper and headlights as this should allow you to see most of
    the front end wiring.

    I fitted some to my 1996 Vectra and the wiring wasn't there - believe me I
    looked
    I ended up running a wire from the relay to the lights - also the warning
    light on the instruments didn't have a printed circuit going to it so I had
    to put a separate warning light in

    cheers for all the advice folks i think i'm going to have to do it the old
    way there ain't no wires or plugs anywhere to be seen.

    Your best bet, given the differences of opinion, I think would be to either
    ask at your local VX garage, or find someone who has a vehicle with the fog
    lights fitted, and have a look to see where the wires go.

    If you have the Haynes manual you might be able to identify the right bits
    of wire by the colours.

    Given all this, on the production line the basic wiring harness/loom tends
    to be fairly standard, with extra bits just plugged-in to make things easy -
    this tends to be why you see dashboards on lower-spec cars with obvious gaps
    for the bits that would be fitted to the higher spec models.
