e39 fitting fogs one connector
Hi i have an e39 with no fogs as standard i am fitting an m-tech bumper and i can only find one on passenger side(euro rhd).
Where is the drivers side? if i have none can i wire 2 fogs from one cable.:dunno:

Assuming you're talking about the wire/plug that you can find on just the Pass' side? Nnot sure you should wire both fogs in to just the one wire/plug as you may be overloading the wire/fuse.

All I would say is that, if there's a wire in there for the pass' side, there is surely one tucked away in there for the driv' side. They MAY just wire one side on the rear of the car, for what they call in England "high intensity" rear (fog) lights but never have I seen just one side lit on the front.

Keep looking, it's in there somewhere! Good luck, please let us know how you get on.

Hi well the cable that runs from lights is going to what i reckon is the horn, i noticed another cable branching from that which is tucked behind pipes and the fog connector if it is would be too big to pull through unless bumper is off which it will be.

Q: is the fog on this side wrapped with the horn for tidiness? :yikes:

Don't know the answer but will check on mine when I get a chance.

Not yet, sorry. Cold and real wet here right now so could possibly be the weekend before I get to it.
