  DIY- Rear Fog Lights

US cars can have the rear foglights enabled by replacing the light switch with the Euro version. These are the same lamps already installed as adaptive brake lights. While the rear fogs are switched on, the adaptive brake light function is disabled.

Parts required- 61 31 6 932 796 ...

In the future, you (and others planning to a) do this DIY and b) moisturize beforehand) might consider getting a box of latex gloves. They're good not only for thise but when you're dealing with anything oily and/or greasy and/or dirty.

You tried JD at Crown??

Some other places refused to get the part. JD is definitely the one to use.

what's everyone doing with the switch they replaced? i mean, that's a bunch of front fog only switches out there now...let's have a group sell...

and yes, people should moisturize. nothing worse than a bunch of pruny, dried up e90 drivers... :-)

jnl, you & I should drive side by side and turn them on at the same time on the 405,or the 10, blind whoever's behind us, get honked at, evade a couple drive-bys...hm...nm, that doesn't sound like anything different than what it's usually like on the LA freakways....

It's not priceless, unless you consider possibly causing a fatal accident and costing a person their life priceless.

Don't be an asshole. Use the light properly.

Which Part Number

Hi guys, thanks for all the tips on this! I have a question though. I found 2 different part numbers for this switch: 61 31 6 932796 and 61 31 6 932792. Do any of you know which one I should choose? I have the E90 325i with NO xenons, No premium, and NO sport..just the base with power seats. Thanks for your help!

Jeff

living in england has made you uppity.... relax, hopefully neuron has enuff neurons to behave himself....

and I don't think his foglights would make LA highways more dangerous than they already are....besides all they have is traffic at 5mph. How much damage could he do?
