Re: SVO: Fog Lights-check bulb holder
When my 84 was 2 or 3 years old, the fog lights didn't work even though
the lighted switch worked. The first time it was the bulbs (one, then the
other went out). I put in cheap bulbs I ordered from J.C. Whitney.
Those bulbs burned out within the year. What also happened was that the
bulb holders became "charred" so to speak. I replaced the bulb holders
and got new Osram bulbs. I have had this set in the car for nearly 10
years or so.
Back then I got bulb holders from Dave Bean Engineering in San
Andreas, CA, as they carried all kinds of Cibie/Marchal lights/parts. I
know they no longer have them (I bought the last Marchal plug-in set of
fogs that Motorsport used to carry as spares years ago.) They might,
however, know of a Cibie distributer for getting bulb holders. Cibie's
U.S. headquarters used to be in Hampton, Va.
So check the bulb holders.
