    Ok Guys, a quick response to this would be really helpfull.

    Got my MOT in tomorrow lunch time, and whilst doing my pre MOT checks this afternoon i found a fault with my rear fog lights.

    When i switch on the rear fog lights, the 2 reverse lights and the fog light glow dimly. Also when you engage reverse only the left reverse light works. Am asuming the fault lies with the right cluster which contains the fog and reverse light. By the way the car only has one fog light.

    Any help would be great.

    I would check the boot loom on the hinged section of the boot. Also I would run a wire from the lamp unit earth to battery earth to see if the problem is fixed. If it is then you will have to trace the earth back to its fixed point on the body.
