I started a thread a while back and am still looking into possibilities. I am a disabled driver although the car is a standard 5 speed + R the only add ons i have are one of those steering wheel knobs to aid low speed maneuvering and more powerful bulbs in the headlamps as i'm also very light sensitive.

I have a pair of fog lights for the front to fit. It's a kit that has everything apart from the wiring from switch to light, I was told by local ford dealer it has the wiring already in place but i'm darned if i can find it.

Can anyone tell me where those wires should be?

Many thanks

If you fit front fogs, you will need a front and rear foglight switch too, this pulls out twice, not once 

The plugs for the fogs if fitted should be cable tied up in the general vicinity of where each of the fog lights fit. They are the plug type with the push-in metal clip on it, like on the injectors (presuming you are petrol).They may have a plastic blank stuck in the plug, to keep crud out

Try subframe legs (towards front) or near rad support bracket, that sort of area... :L

The car took a hit on the front left corner, meaning a new bumper. I've got a feeling their hiding in the legs behind the bumper!

Strange thing is most reckon the LX which she is doesn't have the wiring. Yet Ford say she does, she's one of a batch that had extra bits or provision of bits fitted. She was a lease car originally and they had this batch manufactured. She even runs the wider wheels normally specced for the V6.

It is supposedly hit and miss if the looms are there or not. I wouldn't have thought they would poke any wires anywhere to be honest, as they shouldn't be hanging down.

Have you not seen any plugs at all? They may have a blank thingy poked in them, a bit like the bung they use in the diagnostics connector, which is (iirc) on the bulkhead, passenger side.

Mk2 ones look like this blue one, maybe it is also blue? (not had a mk1 for 10+ years), still got mk2.

If you can survive a day or two, i'll ask the people on the mk1 facebook groups, bet someone has a bumper off pic, hopefully showing the plugs for the foglights.

Something to consider, if you like a bit of extra light, is "the big flash" mod, on full beam the dipped bulbs stay on, and you can also add foglights, making full beam a 6 bulb experience...

I think my write-up, of doing the big flash mod,with how-to pics is in this very forum, should be the same as mk2, maybe the wire colours differ a bit though.

EDIT: Been told pic coming Sun/Mon :L

I haven't had the chance to look yet. I might have hidden them inadvertently when we fitted the new bumper.

 

I'll take a look at your write up, thanks.
