RE: 74 450sl headlight/fog light problems..
First question: Do you have Euro lights, or round, US lights?
Second: Have you checked the bulbs on the fog lights?
Third: Have you verified voltage to the light sockets on the fog lights?
If you have Euro lights, perhaps the low beam is shot on the left light. The fog lights could be the bulbs, the switch, or the ground on the fog lamp circuits... among other things. When you said you checked the fuses, did you put a meter across the fuse, or just a visual check? The fuses can be bad, or corroded, and still look good.
