    Hi Srijit,

    Any update on this issue. Did u get the bracket separately ???

    I too need one of those. I broke my fog lamp bracket. Nicked the pavement and broke it.

    Cheers

    Srijit any developments done on the argument with the TASS, Hope they will fix it back to you FOC, as i think it should not come out so easily unless it had an impact...

    I guess there is a basic flaw with the way the flog lamp is attached. I broke my fog lamp when I was taking a U turn and did not notice a cement slab and rubbed the corner of the bumper with it. When taking a U turn the speed is very less . Some paint scraped off from the bumper and I ended up with the broken fog lamp. See attached pic (red circle). I guess the fog lamp should have one end pivoted(probably the one attached to the bumper) to some movable joint so that is it able to take minor hits with ease.During 2nd service at HIM Patparganj, day before yesterday, I told the guys to fix it but they said they can only replace it ; though they did not have the spare fog lamp with them so its still the same.

    Hi Vivek,

    My case is also similar to yours.

    Is it required to change the whole fog lamp assembly???

    Only the bracket is not available???

    Cheers

    I was thinking about the plastic as one off case for me, but here i realize people loosing there fog lamps, for me the headlamp clamp got cracked, without having any accident or any other big impact as such. I suspect the plastic quality here :(

    Hi Vijay,
    The service advisor Mr Lokesh said that the whole assembly needs to be changed....For such a small breakage.. you need the change the whole stuff :(

    I agree...There is a reason why everyone is criticizing the plastic quality..!!! The cost quoted was Rs 1100 for one complete assembly..
