    This might seem like a daft question but the weather up here in Scotland is shocking with freezing conditions and the thickest fog in years. On way home I noticed that there is only one fog light off-side which I know is the min legal requirement.
    BUT me being an anal sort of person I would rather have both rear fog lights working. So is it a case of puttng a bulb in (ie is the wiring etc there) or would I need to run a wire from the working side (o/s) to the other side??

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be great

    Sorry the wiring is not there. If you remove the plugs from the rear lights you will see that the nearside has one less wire in it, this is where the foglight wire needs to be
