How To Adjust Fog Lights
- Park your vehicle on a flat surface with the lights shining on a wall 25 feet away.
- Now measure from the center of the fog light lens to the ground.
- Adjust the fog lights so they are facing straight forward and the top of the beam is about 4 inches lower than that mark you made on the wall.
How far should fog lights shine?
Fog lights should be mounted on the lower half of your front end. Somewhere on or below the bumper is ideal. They should be around 10 to 24 inches above the ground or at least below your vehicle’s headlights.
How many lumens should fog lights be?
The average brightness for fog lights is between 1,500 and 2,000 Lumens. Your choice here about brightness depends on how much more you’re willing to pay for a brighter light bulb because brighter lights cost more.
Are LED lights good for fog?
LED fog lights are growing in popularity. They provide many advantages over halogen fog lights, and for some drivers, switching to LED is a great choice. This means they produce a whiter light that’s easier on the eyes. They also match the look of xenon HID headlights much better than a halogen bulb could.
Can fog lights be adjusted?
The process of fog lights adjustment is similar to the way you adjust headlights. You will need a tape to measure the distance to make sure the fogs will work right. You will also need flat surface to park the vehicle and wall that will be 25 ft away.
What is the proper height for headlights?
The top of the low beam shining on the wall should be at or slightly below the height of the center of the headlight lens for most vehicles. You should expect the light pattern to be higher on the right side (passenger side) to illuminate road signs and lower on the driver’s side to prevent blinding other drivers.
How do fog lights work?
Fog lamps are intended to provide an adjunct to the low beams. Because fog hovers close to the ground, the lamps are designed to shine down, illuminating the road beneath the fog. The top of the beam is cut off sharply so the light does not shine into the fog and reflect off it.
What angle should fog lights be?
To aim LED fog lights, you need to have a wall and a level surface that meets at a 90-degree angle. Focus the lights on the wall and mark at the bull’s eye, which is the middle of the beam.
