Twin rear fog lamps

S14 Tech Guides

Euro spec S14s come fitted with a rear bumper insert for the Euro size numbers plates and fog lamps. In another bizzare display of penny pinching, Nissan only fitted one working fog lamp. The other is a blanking unit. This as all fine and dandy until you need to turn your fogs on and start receiving the 'one of your fogs is out, mate' comments. It also looks unbalanced.

Luckily Nissan makes fully working units for both sides due to the LHD and RHD markets. You can order a LHD fog lamp from your local dealer using part number 26585-74F10. The unit comes with an electrical connector, but no matching loom connector, so you will either have to buy that separately, acquire one from a scrap yard or, as I did, piggyback the electrics to the existing unit.

During his 'car years', Christian owned, ran and modified a Nissan 200SX (S14) and Nissan Silvia Spec R (S15). He was an active staff member of the UK 200SX Owners Club and one of the founding members of the S15 Owners Club. He owned and administered the club for ten years. Over the course of five years of Nissan ownership, Christian wrote modification guides to aid others. These guides have proved very popular with 200SX/Silvia owners all over the world.

Included with the guides is a record of car ownership over a ten year period.

Christian is now car-less and lives in the public-transport-friendly city of Helsinki in Finland.
