  1. Guest - Welcome to the new Motoring Alliance Site! Steve, MCS02 and I were up until the early hours this morning working to get it done... as you can see it took us a bit longer than expected to get Phase 1 up and running. We are not 100% there.. its a journey. For site updates, "How Do I" and feedback please use the Announcements, How Do I, Feedback Forum (Links below). Like building a car.... its never done... and thanks for your patience

    MINI makes lots of MINI's.... Some small and some huge...

    Which MINI do you have?

    MINI tends to put the fog lights in the bumper low to the ground for..... you know..... the fog....

    They also make an optional light that is mounted up higher on the bumper in front of the grill.... More of a driving light than a fog light...

    Which would be this one...

    In the case of the R56.... It could be this one...

    In the case of the R53.... It could be this one...

    Are you asking about the fog lights or the auxiliary driving lights?

    The fog lights are held onto the vehicle by attaching to something. The horns are also attached to this unit as well.
    This is for a 2004 Mini Cooper S.

    You have been a little miserly with the information, about your car, needed to answer your question.

    You could find the name of what you want right here, just drill down, answering the question about your particular car and you'll find it.

    More than likely the prastic ears on the fog light itself have broken. Happened to one of mine. Darned squirrel! Bought a used fog super cheap & installed it. Loosen the prastic inner fender liner & you can get at it. Easy peasy....
