Hi, as I'm fitting drl lights and taking the bumper off, I've desided to fit front fogs as well.
Looks straight forward enough as wiring is there.
Need to change light stalk too but read somewhere I have to fit a relay.
Is the fitting already on the car and where about is it?
Also any particular relay number I need to fit?
Cheers
Spencer

I remember Enjay did this to his C1, so hopefully he knows all the gory details, you could pm him or this topic useful.

Everything I know should be in the thread that Steve linked to. I didn't actually do the fitting myself simply because the car was due for a service anyway and the dealer (Arnold Clark) said they would do it for free at the same time. I have taken the bumper off though and it was straight forward enough.

As far as the fogs go, I got the necessary bits which consist of the lamps themselves, a new stalk and a relay. Citroen should still be able to supply those bits new (probably about £150-200 ish in total) if you can't get them elsewhere.

As you said, the wiring should be there in a 2012+ car (it was for my car). The plastic blanks need to be removed from the black plastic panels in the bumper (from behind), the indicator stalk needs to be replaced. The relay gets shoved into a holder hidden behind the head unit.

So the job (basically) is:
Take off bumper.
Put lights into bumpers (and plug them in).
Put bumper back on.
Take off the steering wheel.
Take off the old indicator stalk.
Replace with new indicator stalk (the difference is that the new one has the fog lamp switch on it).
Replace the steering wheel.
Take out the head unit.
Shove the relay into place.
Replace the head unit.

None of the steps are particularly problematic to the point that (as I mentioned) Arnold Clark was happy to do it for free.

The car should already be wired, so the above is all that is needed and, when they are switched on, there is a light on the dashboard to let you know that the fogs are on (i.e. no need to fit an additional repeater bulb or anything).

I did have some paperwork for some of the bits (helps with finding where to plug the relay in) but I'm not sure if I got that back after Arnold Clark fitted the bits for me. If I find anything useful, I'll post it.

My thanks, will have a go the weekend, weather permitting.
If I get in touch with the dealer they should be able to supply the right relay for front fogs.
Managed to source the stalk and fogs from one being broken for £90

Good job on sourcing them 2nd hand. The relay should be cheap. With any luck, the dealer should also be able to call up the fitting guide and show you where the relay goes.

Hi Enjay

Thanks for this! I love your detailed posts, they are great :)

I want to fit the fog lights as well, and I found this relay behind by head unit.

Is this the relay you mentioned?

Thanks!

It's so long since I had my dash apart that I can't say for certain, but it certainly looks like the right connector block (from faded memory anyway). I don't recall if the relay needed was the grey one that is already plugged in of if there is another one that needs to be plugged into the empty white socket below it. Sorry.

Hi Enjay,

Thanks for the quick reply, and apologies for my late reply.

Thanks for the advice. I appreciate any info I can get. I've managed to get a hold of an upgraded indicator stalk, and will update on my progress as soon as I can.

Have a great one :)
