and here I must admit because it is not for free this garage buuh I just
liftet up the and car replaced only left side to LED while right side was still original bulp NOT led switched on the light I saw it light nicely..
So I changed the right side aswell and on the swicth but no lights come on!
and found the fuse blown! So here is my quistion because I didnt really tried again with a new fuse I just put back the old bulps and then replaced the fuse..
Should there be anything I should be aware of?

Have you tried to measure the current being drawn via fuse f9 when you switch on the led fog lights? The fuse is rated at 15A.

Remove the fuse, and insert an Ammeter (digital multimeter set to amps range) in its place. It may be that there is an initial surge at switch-on, and it is possible that the surge is so quick that you will not see it. Report here what happens. :thumbsup:
