T-Roc Fog lights....replacement bulbs?

Post by Agerbundsen » Sun Feb 18, 2018 10:18 am

Even with all other lights on the Sport version being LED equipped, are the front fog lights still old fashioned halogen bulbs. So far they seem pretty useless with a clearly dim and yellowish light compared to everything else.

There are no specifications of the actual bulbs used in the manual, so:

Does anyone know which bulbs are used?

Are there any direct replacement bulbs with a decent light output? Maybe either Philips or Osram super halogens or a direct replacement LED?

That's poor, eh?! I've had Osram Nightbreakers and some Philips as headlight bulbs with good results but they don't last long. Are they easy to swap themselves in the T-Roc? I am not sure that they are "strong" enough for a fog light tho. Might be worth checking with your dealer

The bulbs are a H8 for the fog lights, I change mine with a 6000k LED and now looks a little bit nicer, still didn't use it on foggy weather.

Totally recommend to change it, not only for looks, also to improve the cornering illumination.

I'm also annoyed with the yellowish front fog lights.

Can anyone suggest me the whitest halogen H8 bulb I can put in my T-roc?

I know that the LED bulbs are probably better but then I have to put some kind of resistor, and I'm don't have lots of electrical knowledge and besides that I don't wan't to mess with my new vehicle. And I usually don't have any fog where I live so the halogen bulbs will be enough for using as a cornering light. Thank you.

Use either Osram or Philips. They both have a selection of H8 bulbs in different intensities and also LED's, which I THINK have the resistors built in.

Stay away from off-brand bulbs, as the filaments are not necessarily in the most accurate location in the bulb.

If anyone have tried the LED's, I would like to hear of the results, thanks.

It works with no problem and improve the cornering light, no error, and also the same color as the OEM LED lights.

I found something like this but the minimum order is 20 pcs. Maybe you can find something similar..

Also, I'm not shure if you can just install the fog lights or you have to cut out the holes in the bumper yourself to add the fog lights afterwards.
