foglight lamp - socket/holder?
« on: June 11, 2018, 03:40:49 PM »
Bought a pair of new foglights but dont really get it how to install the bulbs.
Cant get in contact with the seller so I try with you guys :)

Attached a photo on the reflector and tiny spring. Wonder if I miss a socket or holder, or if there are any other ways to install an old 6V bulb here?

Where did you find those?  Are they for a 52 220 also?

I believe this is the type of bulb holder you need

I believe that link is for a headlight (High/Low Beam).
The fog light has a single center contact.
Here are photos of mine.
