Wrong way round in the bumper on an 06
They only fit in one way, by that i mean on the correct side. The only way this can happen if they are LHD versions ie on the opposite sides

There the ones

Another cheaper option is to replace the bulb in your o/s light (rev light unit) with a red 1 - the reverse light (your n/s unit) is ok as a rev light isn't part of the MOT

You'll still need to run a wire from your n/s light to your o/s light so when you switch on your fog it'll light up the o/s light (with the red bulb)

Yes thats them.

If the wiring is the same as mine is a very simple swap over, i have a wire running from one side of the boot to the other underneath the plastic trim. if you remove this and pull the side carpet in the boot back it will be obvious what needs doing.

hope this helps

This should help with the removal of the lights; How To Remove Rear Fog/ Reverse Light

As for the wire, my post above this one kind of describes there should be one in place as they have already been swapped over, if it stops rainning here ill go and take a picture of mine so you can see what i mean.

Here is the picture of the connection, its the same on both sides, to switch back to the uk setup simply unplug the two wires that run under the boot trim and connect the two short connections that are left back together and then the same on the other side. fog_light_connections__2_.JPG

Then you can either remove the wire that runs under the boot trim shown in pic two or just leave them in situ, the trim is a nightmare to remove unless you have the correct tool.
