Hello I own a Renault trafic 2.5 2006

I'm looking to install front fog lights

The holes in the bumper for the fog lights have clip in covers so I can just remove these rather than drill holes
There is a plastic harness for the fog lights to sit in behind the bumper

I've found the wires from the loom for the front fog lights

As I understand it I need a new indicator stalk with the front fog symbol on it

A front fog relay

And a fuse

Does anyone know the type of relay and location

and where does the fuse go ?

Thanks

Does anyone know the relay needed for front fog lights

I read the post above and I've also found a missing relay
Front Passenger side footwell on the right there is a bank of relays with the bottom one missing so I assume this is the place for the front fog light relay
I'm stuck what ampage to buy or colour relay

Thanks

Hello Stuart

Yes there is a number on the relay bank it's
7703297572
I have checked on the net and i think it's just a part number for the relay bank

I have tried to buy a front fog light relay from three local auto parts shops but no luck

I have bought the fog lights from ebay they are sided and don't come with the light bulbs
The bulbs are H1 55 watt maximum for the fog lights

I have added some pictures

Fuse for the front fogs is behind cup holder on passenger side.

15A right hand side 3rd fuse down
as you can see from my fuse board, i have a fuse but i don't have front fogs:frown2:

Its a 4 pin relay,, nothing special,,, no amp size given, bUt some one will tell you that
I have worked it out at, 2 * 55watt = 110/ 12 volts fuse = Amps of around 10, The fuse fitted, or needs fitting if not,, is a 15 amp (Fuse size protecting both fogs.)
This is the one that matches my info, for switching purposes
Numbers I am going on are 1, 2, 3 and 5
Found this on TBAY,,
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hella-Relay-12V-15-AMP-4-Pin-Normally-Open-Fused-Relay-/141404289629?hash=item20ec5a3a5d:g:WYsAAOSw7NNT9i2w


Hope my method of working out amps is still correct.
But Tim will check, for all of us,,,.. In case I have it wrong.
(Your middle hole, nothing in it) on the relay board, I refer to Gents

Thanks Stuart

I haven't seen those relays with fuses attached before

I've seen the piggyback fuse

That type of relay will be extremely helpful if I haven't got a fuse holder for the front fogs

Thanks

When you put your fuse in, check the point I have marked in red.
This is power line from the fuse

Thanks

That's a really good tip to check for a live feed
I've got a 12v light tester I will check for a live feed tomorrow

Really appreciate the help

Thanks

Just installed the fog lights straight forward job
As you can see in my picture I have cover plates which are clipped in and a moulded fog light harness
The cover plates are difficult to remove as there are two grip clips holding them in place ,so I remove the Facia cover ,just undo the two torx screws gently prise the top part out towards you then slide out towards the engine , you may have to push the clips forward from underneath inside the bumper
There is one large clip don't push this one as it will snap just slide out the Facia

The fog lights have to clips which fit in the pre moulded harness There is also a screw thread on the fog light which take a bolt to hold them in place within the harness
The bolts don't come with the fog lights
As my van was pre wired for fog lights I just connected the fog wired connectors that where tired up within the engine bay

The fuse for the front fog lights is also fitted and wired

I will add some more pictures of indicator stalk when I get it

May help someone who looking to fix front fog lights

Well done Tony, be interesting to know when you have to change the indicator stalk, as on mine it says 'remove steering wheel'. :surprise:

Easy peasy, once one knows how to remove the Air Bag.
Same ish wheel as Scenic 2. :smile2:

Just done a test run to see if I need to remove the steering wheel

I didn't need to remove the steering wheel

Just undo the two torx screws on the plastic cover plate from the bottom

Then I released the steering wheel clamp underneath with the steering wheel pulled the steering extending it out

Then just removed both plastic covers which gives you access to the indicator switch

I will post some pictures when I get the indicator stalk
