Rear fog lights?

Ive been told that my 1993 WRX import won't get through it's MOT unless I get a rear fog light installed. Is this true?

I've been trying to find a picture of a classic scoob with one on the back as I have no idea where abouts one would go, so if anyone has any pics of theirs I'd be interested to see!

Re: Rear fog lights?

Some ppl just fit one below the bumper drivers side however ive got sti rear lights an these come without a fog light-ya get round this by rewiring fog light wiring(on a uk) to reverse light lens drivers side then ive used a 21w red silvatec bulb so when its off cant see a red bulb in a clear lens.

On yours nothing to stop ya doing the same-though in theory should have had a foglight on for the sva unless someones took it off(in which case wiring may be in boot somewhere)

Re: Rear fog lights?

Yea it has been suggested I just pop one under the drivers side to save hassle. I think it might look a bit odd though. I'd be really interested to see if anyone has a picture! Is it a definate MOT fail if I don't have one?

Thanks Dave. That doesn't look as bad as I imagined. Only thing is my rear bumper comes down quite a bit lower than that but I imagine it will be OK, if only for the MOT

No problem mate,chances after of ya being pulled for it are slim as ppl just assume the foglights in the main lenses, otherwise if it bothers ya not having one leave it on in winter-take off for summer.

Re: Rear fog lights?

Sounds like a plan to me. Where would you reckon the best place to pick one up would be? Had a look on ebay and couldn't see any.

General car shops usually have them or trailer/caravan places-usually cheap aswell as they dont sell many these days
