Hi,<br>I am new to this forum, Just had a few questions for now.<br>I just bought a 95 940 Wagon.<br>The owners manual shows that there is a Rear Fog Light,<br>but only on the drivers side, the passenger side tail light housing<br>has a plastic tab over the spot where it should be, and no electrical<br>wires connected to it.<br>What is the reason for just the single Fog Lamp?<br>I had a couple of 740s and a 760, and I remember one of them had the <br>Fog Lamps on both sides.<br>Any way to fit them for both sides?<br>Thanks....<br>Warne

Re: 940 Rear Fog Light (crowswagon)

Welcome to Swedespeed, Warne.<p>This subject has been batted around muchly both here at Swedespeed and other car forums.<p>Some folks think the single (brighter) red fog light is that way to be seen from behind in limited visibility conditions and to not be confused with two tail lights, two brake lights or one flashing turn signal light.<p>A few say two rear fogs are illegal in some markets.<p>Others ask why their Volvo has "auto-off" fog lights.<p>Yes, it is very easy to add a fog light on the right side tail light cluster on your 940 wagon.<p>Here are the bulb specs...<p>----------------------------------------------------------------------------<br>Rear fog light<br>Bulb #1156<br>21 Watts/32candlepower<br>BA 15s socket<br>----------------------------------------------------------------------------<p>...and here are some of the online discussions...<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=88694" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=88694</A><p><A HREF="http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20070203154043AA4Y3e2" TARGET="_blank">http://answers.yahoo.com/quest...4Y3e2</A><p><A HREF="http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-1155097.html" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.bimmerforums.com....html</A><p>Pull the pax-side rear panel in the cargo area and look around for any unused wires/sockets. If none consider running a "hot" wire from the existing fog light, above the headliner and down to the existing plastic tab. Junk yard a socket identical to the existing fog socket then pull the plastic tab and "retrofit" the new socket (must be grounded to chassis). Buy two new spec bulbs in a two-pack and be sure the fuse is of the correct rating. Save that plastic tab.<p>Now drive around 'til you find some fog...<p>Love dem Balbos!<p>George Dill
