Default Fog lamps, '99 SLE

Replaced the bulbs with SilverStars today.

What are the little twisty deals under the lamp sockets? Is that some sort of adjustment?

Yessir. The wingnut with the spring is an elevation adjustment.

I thought that was BillBoost digging through his parts bin????

You need to maintain those adjusters, too. When I got my 98, they were just rusty bits with plastic bits surrounding them. I would highly recommend a light coating of grease, and a few turns back and forth once or twice a year.

Mine move freely, but then I'm a Californian, where ice and snow (and salt on the roads) are all unknown.

I knew there was some reason houses here cost $750K.

they just seem to hate being on all the time....I would imagine having them on whenever you are driving tends to wear them out.

I never have had an issue but cars that keep them on whenever whille driving have...

They have a reputation for being tempermental. the headlights are great but,the foggys are a different story. I usally keep mine on all the time and generally lose one about every 3 to 4 months

Oh well,that'* the price we pay
