Re: Renault - Megane - Fog Light Question

are you telling me that mine own eyes doth deceive me and I did NOT see, last time I was behind the car with the fogs switched on, two blindingly bright red lamps, distinct and seperate from the stop/tail lamps?

Re: Renault - Megane - Fog Light Question

I always thought that if the car is meant to have 2 but only 1 works, it will fail. I know some cars only have one, but when a car like the Meg1 which has 2 working fog lights goes through MOT, it should have both of them working.

Because with your argument, I could say that some cars do not have the third middle brake light so if mine does not work then it doesn't matter.

Have I been living a lie?

Re: Renault - Megane - Fog Light Question

As long as the offside (drivers side) foglight is working for a mainland GB MOT then it will pass.

As for centre brake lights,they don't have to work for it to pass the MOT,although many testers (myself included a few times in the past) will fail a car because of it as VOSA weren't 100% clear on the rules.I stopped testing 2 years ago though and I guess the rules may have been clarified/changed since then though.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....

Re: Renault - Megane - Fog Light Question

My Mégane II passed it's MOT with neither of the registration bulbs working, and only one tail light working (both brake lights worked). They were put on the advisory list.

And for what it's worth, my Meg only has one foglight as well.
