Our expert insights into fog lamp front replacement

What does a front fog lamp do?

A front fog light is responsible for illuminating the road in front of your vehicle when driving in poor visibility. They are not mandatory in the UK, however they are useful in thick fog to illuminate the road ahead. They also alert other road users to your presence on the road which may not be immediately obvious with poor visibility.

What are the signs of a bad fog lamp?

Below are the top three symptoms that could indicate you need to replace your fog lamp bulb:

  • If one or both of your fog lights has stopped working

  • If your fog lights are dimmer than usual

  • If you have noticed your fog lights flickering or dipping in and out

What happens when we do a fog lamp replacement on your car?

Our certified mechanics will:

  • Inspect the fog lights and test to see which ones need replacing

  • They will then disconnect any power wires attached to the fog lights

  • Unscrew or unclip the old fog light bulb that needs replacing

  • Fit the new fog light bulbs, ensuring they’re the correct size and type for your car make and model

  • They’ll reconnect the power wires and test that the new bulb is working

Hey Fixter, how often should a fog lamp be replaced?

Unfortunately no bulbs will last the lifetime of your vehicle, which means at some point you’ll need to replace your fog light bulbs. There is no set mileage at which this should be done, as it depends on how often you use them and on the type of bulb. Just be sure to check them regularly.

Our reviews

Takes a lot of stress away

I would definitely recommend this company: knowing someone was keeping an eye on everything to make sure I wasn't being overcharged for parts and labour takes a lot of stress out of having the work done. I felt really well looked after. Thank you Fixter.

Kathleen Hodge, West Yorkshire

Excellent service

Excellent service. On time to pick up my car & drop it back. Full service cost £179, main dealer quoted me £700-lots different!

Muhammad, Birmingham

Total game-changer!

Just had my MOT done through Fixter for the first time. It took about 5 minutes of my time in total to book, hand over the key, and get it back when the car was returned. So I was able to carry on looking after my 2 year old. Total game-changer!

Oliver Woodford, London

No need to drive to a garage

Can't get more convenient than someone turning up, taking the car from the house for its MOT and returning it a few hours later. No having to drive to a garage (often miles from anywhere or in the middle of an industrial estate) or hanging around waiting.

Darren, Pontefract

I literally cannot fault them

This is the 3rd time I have used Fixter and I recommend to everyone. It makes getting an MOT super easy for me. Everyone I speak to on the phone is incredibly helpful and polite, and they seem to be the most cost effective. I literally cannot fault them.

What does a front fog lamp do?

A front fog light is responsible for illuminating the road in front of your vehicle when driving in poor visibility. According to UK and European law a car must have at least one (working) rear fog light, to warn traffic of your presence when they are closing in on you from behind in poor conditions.

Some more modern cars are also equipped with front fog lights, either as standard or as an optional extra, which help you to see the road ahead more clearly in thick fog.

Both these fog lights are important safety features so should be regularly checked and properly maintained.

Kia

Kia Motors Corporation (widely known as Kia Motors) is South Korea’s second-largest automobile manufacturer, behind their parent company, the Hyundai Motor Company.

They were initially established in December 1944, over 70 years ago, as a steel tubing and bicycle parts manufacturer who started building cars in the 1970s.

Coming from a background of building cars under licence for the likes of Fiat, Mazda and Peugeot, it wasn’t until the 1980s when Kia started to produce vehicles under their own brand name, and only more recently were they to become minority owned by Hyundai, who currently holds a 33.88% stake in the company, in 2015.

From the mid-1990s, the amount of Kia cars on UK roads has seen a steady increase to the current number of around 800k today.

Given their reliability, value for money and market-leading 7-year, 100k mile warranty, Kia is a marque that is heading for further popularity, greater sales and added respect.

Superb value for money

With an extensive range of models to choose from, Kia cars offer excellent value. From their city car Picanto starting at under £10k, through to their luxury spec SUV Sorento at £30k, Kia cars compete with more established mainstream brands, offering not only strong price-points but with advanced levels of technology and the extended benefits you’d expect from a car of a higher price.

Kia Sportage: The 10th best selling car in the UK

Given the rise in growth of the Korean car brand, it shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see its best selling model sneak into the top 10 best selling cars of 2018. This great value and practical SUV is ideal for family motoring; not only is it rugged and good looking, but it’s also backed with Kia’s impressive reliability and extensive warranty.

The law, vehicle regulations and your MOT

Legally a car must have at least one (working) rear fog light and more modern cars should also be equipped with front fog lights. Because these lights are important safety features they will be checked during an MOT. If they are found to be broken or faulty your car will most likely fail its MOT.

What causes a fog lamp bulb to break?

Fog lamp bulbs can break for a variety of reasons. For example, because of a blown fuse, if water has seeped into the light or over time they can simply wear out. The most important thing is that you replace the bulbs as soon as possible as it can be dangerous to drive without them.

What are the signs of a bad fog lamp bulb?

Usually, there a few signs you can look for:

  • If one or both of your fog lights has stopped working

  • If your fog lights are dimmer than usual

  • If you have noticed your fog lights flickering or dipping in and out

What is the average life of a fog lamp bulb?

There is no set lifespan of fog lamp bulbs, as it depends on how often you use them and on the type of bulb. Just be sure to check them regularly to ensure they're fully functional for when you need to use them.

Can you drive with a broken fog lamp bulb?

You shouldn't drive without functioning front fog lamps. Legally a car must have at least one (working) rear fog light, to warn traffic of your presence when they are closing in on you from behind in poor conditions.

Some more modern cars are also equipped with front fog lights, either as standard or as an optional extra, which help you to see the road ahead more clearly in thick fog.
