Dealing with Infiniti M35 Fog Light Problems
The different kinds of lights installed on your Infiniti M35 are all very important when it comes to road safety. The fog lights, for instance, help the headlights illuminate the road when weather conditions are unfavorable. However, these lights may fail and cause troubles. So you won't get stuck in the middle of nowhere with a faulty fog light, listed below are some of the common issues that you may encounter with this part and what you should do to solve them:
Dim fog lights
If the fog lights of your Infiniti M35 are very dim, then you should check their bulbs immediately. Usually, after six months or so, car experts recommend bulb inspection because fog lights may flicker or become dim over time. In case the bulbs are the culprits behind this problem, then you need to replace them at once. Fortunately, this is an easy DIY project, and you don't need special tools to accomplish it. Just make sure that your replacement bulbs' part numbers correspond to the numbers of the ones that you are replacing.
Misaligned fog lights
Just like headlights, your Infiniti M35 fog lights should also be properly aimed to avoid causing inconvenience to other drivers. What's more, if these lights are misaligned, you might find it difficult to see the road in front of you during harsh weather conditions. As a solution, you need to readjust your fog lights. To do this, just park your M35 25 feet away from a wall. Then, adjust the lights and make sure that the tops of their beams are resting four inches below the center mark of your headlights.
Dirty fog lights
Over time, the fog lights of your vehicle will become dirty due to condensation. As a result, you will have a hard time navigating roads under unfavorable weather conditions because the fog lights will not be as bright as before. Although other drivers may suggest immediate replacement, you can also try cleaning the lenses of the lights with toothpaste especially if you don't want to spend a lot of money. However, don't forget to allow the fog lights to dry for a few hours before reinstalling them to avoid further damage.
