A single (offside) fog light is pretty normal in the UK. If you have 2 they must match.

All my previous cars had 1 rear fog, but only because on the other symmetric side, it was the reverse light! And conseqently, only 1 reverse light. Speaking of which, assuming V40s have 2 reverse lights? I always thought they fit both rear fog bulbs and holders there, and depending if we are in UK or Europe, they would activate the 'correct' side single rear fog.

I would think the cost-cutters would ensure nothing superfluous was fitted.....

Bumping an old thread back to life here.

My 2017 R-Design only illuminates the O/S (right) fog lamp. The N/S (left) lamp does not illuminate, yet strangely is actually fitted with a bulb!

I don't want to just McGyver it by running a wire from O/S to N/S to make the N/S one work in case it damages something without checking: Has anyone done this before?

-T
Same with my LHD 2017 V40, had bulb fitted to RHS but doesn't work. Garage told me I had to go to Volvo Dealer so that they could programme it, assume this is with VIDA?

The amount of enquiries over the years that started "I need a bulb, for the fog light" Yes sir, the left one is it...
The other popular one was "I've got a crack in the drivers mirror, how much are they to replace"

I am new to Volvov40 Club, not sure your reply had any benefit apart from maybe sarcasm at my post! 🤨

I enjoy discussion!! The reply to your post was maybe slightly "off topic" but still relevant to the fog light story, cars only having one working foglight and needing to go to a dealer. The discussion had already covered the topic so didn't feel any value in repeating the bits about adding wires, the 2016 loom etc. apologies if you felt any sarcasm:) Hey, its a good place to be for information...
