Hi Lucy,

 

Can't your MOT garage get you the correct bulb and fit it for you ?

Hi,

Yes they’ve been very good. My issue was that the fog light has been modified from the drivers side reversing light which is clear. The bulb must’ve been ‘painted’ by whoever fit it when it was first converted. They don’t do the bulb I need in red. It’s been sorted by taking a break light red bulb out and using that. What I’m worried about now is when that one goes.. Has anyone else had any issues sourcing bulbs?

Hello Lucy,

 

Surely all you need is a spare brake light bulb, in red ?

Try Halfords.

Have you tried ebay?

 

I tried 12v, 16w, W2.1 and got several choices.

 

Thanks for the photo, but it is difficult to see the clear bulb behind the clear plastic packaging.

 

Good Luck.

Hi Lucy you are not alone!

 

My story is I got fig light installation done and at first MOT was told the fog light bulb colour is not exactly right and might fail mot next time! So I need to source a red bulb that is I believe 'double filament". I have the bulb that came out from that spot originally. Let me post the pic here for information, though I understand one we need is different.

 

I have contact to dig light installer and he should be able to help. I'll get back after speaking to him.

 

By the way...Information is buried in this forum that is crying for method to some tabulated logical search method

I've asked someone who does Fog lights install and he said the rear tail light conversion bulb is 

 

921R Red 12V 21W Capless Push Fit Car Bulb

 

To remind the original bulb there was  
KOITO JAPAN 921
12V W16W E4 2EL 8ZG

 

Fog light after conversion is circled in picture below.

Thank you very much Teekay. That’s really, really helped 👍

I'm glad it helped. This forum works on good will. Wish the format could be changed to something more helpful as it is all piled up info
