Re: How to remove the front fog lights-DIY
SERIES 2 VERSION
I picked up Series 2 foglights / relay / switch / from Jalal a few months ago, and have only recently got around to installing them.
In the case of the Series 2, there are 2 scrivets and one screw holding the plastic cover at the bottom of the wheel arch. They are quite easy to pop out. You only need to release the bottom flap - not the whole wheel arch section.
Luckily Jalal supplied the bolts and captive nuts with the lights, which made fitting the lamps a breeze. The wiring harness was there ready to connect.
The relay position is very clearly marked on the lid of the electrical box under the bonnet.
I had quite a bit of trouble removing the steering column cover. There are 4 Torx head screws. 3 are easy to find, but the 4th one is buried deep under the wiper switch. I had to buy a long adaptor to get to it.
You have to pop out the escutcheon ring around the ignition switch before the lower cover will come away. This can be done with gentle persuasion using a small screwdriver.
The indicator / light switch assembly is held in place with two plastic spring tabs. You squeeze the tabs down and slide the switch assembly towards the drivers door. Once free, there are two connectors that need to be unplugged. Each connector is held in place with a plastic latch on the side. You need to push the latch in with a small screwdriver whilst pulling on the plug.
Putting it all back together is a breeze. The whole job took me around an hour, which was about twice as long as it should have.
