    How are fog lamps fixed on to the bumper? From front, i see there are some clips on the bumper which holds the fog lamps console. Mine have slipped out of these clips and the whole console is moving around. I am going on a long trip this coming Wednesday and i am concerned now. Wouldn't air seep through these gaps and would lead to more sound and resistance?

    @clash..If you go by the pic I posted then it seems that there is a screw that is inserted at the lower end of the bumper ...the other end of which (I think) has the clip that you are reffering to.....BTW are you sure that your fog lamp is in tact ? Because I too was thinking that some clip has gone loose..as the whole assemble was loose and there was a gap...later on when the car was jacked up did I notice the broken fog lamp

    IMG_20111004_091729.jpg folks, i have uploaded the pic of the fog lamp console. I have marked the clips on the bumper which holds the console. As seen, the fog lamp console has popped out of the clips on the bumper.

    Apart from the clips, i believe there is a screw which holds the lamp to the bumper.[SUB] If there is no screw, i am screwed. :p I fear the console will fall off any time.

    This is surprising, because my car did get banged up a few (in fact a lot) times on long drives. In fact once the impact was so much that the alloy was bent and left the tyre sidewall swollen.I insected the car thoroughly and found all intact (have explained the case in one the threads earlier) and was happy that FIAT makes some solid cars..

    You should take this up with TASS!

    Sorry Guys... I did not check this thread.
    Actually I have been driving without one fog lamp since it broke.I took it to TASS once, they showed me a couple of scrach marks under the bumper and said the speed breakers brushing might have caused it to break.
    I did not argue much.At that time a new fog lamp was quoted at 1500/- and fitting charges of 150/-.
    Somehow I feel the casing plastic is of poor quality and FIAT should take this up.

    hi Vijay,
    On enquiry they asked to change the whole assembly.

    I don't see the possibility of the fog lamp taking a direct hit. If you check the placement, it is deep inside far far away from the ground. The only way I see it can get damaged is due to impact on the bumper which in turn would cause the plastic frame to break.
    Experts , I seek your opinion on this.
