View Full Version : Fitting front fogs to a 2001 new shape??

Saturday 26th March 2005, 08:25
Hello all

I'm on the hunt for information from all and sundry.

My 2001 V70 is minus front fogs, now doing more miles than I thought and would like to upgrade :pimp2:

My dilemma :bounce: how difficult is it to fit them and are there any pitfalls that I should be aware of :cool: :cool:

BTW just joined the forum......great site, fast loading and easy for navigation.

Keep it up

not sure how easy they are to physically fit but think you might need a software upgrade to get them to work (not sure what year they started doing it)

Cheers Pedro

I am on hols next week and will find out if a software upgrade is required. Hope not, methinks Volvo will be expensive for that one:(:(

if you do need the software then there is the option of using just the volvo switch, add another wiring loom & bypassing the ecu. But understandibly theres not many people willing to do it that way on such a new/expensive car
