Default Fog Light

I have seen a number of posts about a problem with the fog lights, is it just a matter of replacing the bulb or does the whole light itself have to be replaced?

Assuming you have a GXP, there is a TSB on this. You need to have the dealer replace the forward wiring harness. The TSB is 050842013.

Unless you have this addressed, you wil change fog light bulbs VERY frequently. In my case "frequently" meant every three days.
