Replacing fog lamp/bulb in Mk2 Leon

Replacing fog lamp/bulb in Mk2 Leon

Postby Noah on Sat Jan 13, 2007 4:25 pm

Looking straight on to the front of the car, there is a screw in the very bottom corner of the honeycomb grill.
Image
Remove that screw.
Image
The cover then twists off from that corner, I used a plastic lever tool to remove it, but a flat screwdriver would work (just put some tape around the end to protect the paint).
Image
Then remove the three screws shown with the white arrows below.
The blue arrow shows the adjuster screw.
Image
The lamp then simply lifts out.

I am replacing the damaged lamp, but follow the same process to replace just the bulb.
Un-plug the cable, a small screwdriver may be required.
Release the wire strap holding the back of the lamp assembly on. The bulb (H3) is held in place with another wire spring.
Image
Image

Assembly is then just the reverse process
Image


It’s also worth noting that when the drivers side lamp is out, it gives some limited access to the washer bottle and horn.

Don't suppose you happen to have the part number handy!
I am in the same boat as you cracked drivers side fog light and dealer is less than helpful.

How much did it cost and did you have to replace the full unit?

Cheers

Part number is 5P0941704 @ £69.94 + vat.

Yep replace the whole unit.

The whole job is very easy and takes about 15-20 minutes.

The dealer first quoted me something like £120 to supply and fit, and because the manual says that to replace the fog light bulbs is a dealer job I presumed that the light must be mounted from behind.

Turns out with a bit of investigation it's a piece of pee to replace.

Does it work the same for the Toledo as well
I haven't cracked a lens but one of the bulbs popped last night as I was checking them

The new Altea shape Toledo? Probably yes, although I haven't checked.

No its the old shape Toledo (Leon with a boot)
haven't had a chance to go crawling about yet, Saturday if I get a chance
Wouldn't have a new shape one anyway, bit of ugly bleeder really
Going to get a new shape Leon next (yellow and blue looks nice- I wish)
