Search on this website for led fog lamps or fog lights. There is a post by siggi gunda showing how to change them to led. A few of us here have done it & it’s very easy, literally a 10 min job. I bought mine from eBay for £12 a pair as they include the resistors & you don’t get any canbus errors on the dashboard. The fogs now match the white led headlights perfectly

Hey CJD do you have maybe a link of your fog lights? How many kelvins does they have to match the headlights color perfectly? Thank you!

Rcehovin, these are the ones I’ve fitted as has siggi gunda & a few others on here. If you trawl through the posts on fog lights you’ll see siggi gunda’s photos with them fitted & instructions on how to fit

CJD, I've just read that you'd changed your front fog lamps to LED yourself and was hoping you could give me some advice?
Did you use the same lamps as siggi gunda 'cos I've bought the same ones?
Don't know what model 'Roc you have but I'm having grief removing the trim around the lamp :( :( .... I have an R-line and can start the removal process using the hook but, as the whole corner needs to come away, it seems very stubborn as you near the wheel arch trim as it appears to go behind it. Is it just a matter of giving it an old fashioned tug or is there a more subtle way of persuading it out? :evil: :evil: :evil:

I always thought the reason fog lights were slightly yellow was to see through the fog better than your headlights 🤔

Hi Swsgm30
Yes you do need to use a bit of brute force to really yank the plastic casing out with the metal hook thing. Once you get that part out just gently continue to pull & lever the casing almost as if your peeling it away towards the corner. Then you’ll need the torx screwdriver to release the 2 very visible screws & the lamp unit pops forwards & slides out from its inner mount. The bulbs then detach from the wiring & release from the lamp unit with half a turn.
Re fitting is a pig because you have to literally push the small splines/ wings on the plastic housing cover into place around the lamp unit & bumper to make it go in. Start by inserting the outer edge then really pay attention & as you start to push it shut slowly, push the lugs/ wings into the little appature/recess for them which are really difficult to see unless your looking for it.
This is really the worst part & frustrating because the housing will not fully sit flush & pops open if you don’t get this bit right. Took me an hour and a half to figure the first side out & took me 3 mins to fit the other side 😂
