Fit fog lights to a C4?
Fog Light Installation Guide

Fitting Time: 1 Hour

Tools: Couple of Screwdrivers, and jack.

Difficulty: Easy, although small hands would help in the tight spots

Overview:

Having ordered my new Fog lights on Ebay, they arrived yesterday, and were fitted to the car today. The box comes with:

2 x Fog Lights
2 x New Grille Inserts
1 x Instruction Manual

The box also includes a couple of cable ties and a small fog light sticker to put on your indicator stalk laug!

Installation is relatively easy, as with a bit of patience and care the front bumper does not have to be removed, although to gain access to the underside of the car a jack is a required.

The first job is to remove the current grilles, which is a simple case of carefully popping them out of their clips with a flat head screwdrivers. The car then needs to be jacked up, and the front bumper undertray removed. Again, this is a simple job - undo a few screws and slide/pop the tray out.



A quick inspection revealed the car (a VT model) did already have the connections required for the fogs - these had been tucked away.



The bodywork already behind the grilles had the mounting brackets ready for the new fogs, and these were secured with 3 screws each.



The connections were then plugged into the back of the fogs. A quick test revealed they did not work - it seems the fogs will have to be "enabled" at the dealership.

The installation manual does feature 2 pages of screenshots of the Citroen dealership "software" menu's required to access the enabling option for the fog lights. Although in French this could prove useful if I find the Citroen techs scratching their heads!

The grilles were then replaced, and the undertray re-fitted. Job done!
