Logan tail lights not identical?

Recommended Posts

Many European models have the same kind of tail lights? Have anybody noticed the tail lights of Ford Ikon with a faded amber/red piece at one side? I dont know whats that for.

hey vibhor, that single red light is not a brake lamp, it does not light up while braking. its a rear fog lamp. and indeed its a cost cutting measure, i think. many manufacturers provide rear fog lamps along with two reverse lights too.

ford had initially done this with thier earlier ikons but they rectified it later.

so many honda - city- vtec fans out there. And you guys noticed it for the first time?

 

There ae three types of rear fog lamps:-

1. Like the one you saw on longan, sx4, city........ One side is the reverse and the other side is the rear fog lamp.

2. The rear fog lamp is totaly a different from all the other lamps like the one in the CR-V. Its located on the right hand side just after the

3. The right side brake light also works as a rear log lamp and brigtens up.

 

The commom thing is all of them are on the right hand side.

Now the side boldly marked and with arrow is the rear fog light.

 

The other side though looks the same but has no bulb there.

 

Wonder if you guys ever noticed that.

Don't know about logan much.

But how come this is a cost cutting measure? They didn't make a separate place for the rear fog lamp and used one reverse light?

Thats cost cutting?

In right hand driving market you have fog lamp mostly in the right side ans in left hand drive it on the left but now these days to make the car look well proportioned (like swift &Dzire) they have put it in the middle.

there are many such ways adi, you are right. in many cars, the fog lamps work by brightening the rear lights itself. but this is applicable only if the rear (red/parking) lights and brake lamps are different, like in an opel astra. in the logan, the parking and brake lights are in the same housing, so they gave a different place to the rear fog lamps.
