Rear fog lamp

Postby Shellysowner » 30 Dec 2006, 19:12

Does anyone's Chevette have twin rear fogs?

As far as I can make out Chevettes didn't come with rear fogs at all for a start off but after that they only seem to have been supplied with 1 ad that includes the GL.

The sun hatch is the only brochure I have to hand (don't have all of my brochures to hand) where a car is pictured with twin rear fogs as standard. Under the boot floor, Shelly is all wired up for twin rear fogs, the second one just needs plugging in. Has anyone else noticed this bit of wiring on their car?

Yes. :)

I haven`t got any dangley fogs, mines in the O/S reversing light...red 21watt led bulb, but I think you know that anyway.

Just done that to SYBil too Neily. Tidies up the back end somewhat, hey.

Yep, noticed that wiring too. I think on the rear panel behind the bumper on my car, there is a pressed mark for where the wiring and grommet would go through the panel. In the accessories brochure I have it shows the twin fogs fitted as an optional cost extra, even for the GL.
