    When wiring my head lights I noticed there was an extra cable in the orignal loom.
    The cable is green and white, its in the headlight plug but nothing for it in the head light.

    This is on the origanl pre-facelift loom.

    Any one know what this cable is for?
    I forgot to trace it or to see if it was live.

    Its deffo something to do with the head light.

    The cable goes in to the headlight plug with 5 pins but the light socket only has 4 pins and cables.
    Fog lights is the only thing i can think it is.

    Compare the color of the indicator wires i sent you, If they're also green/white then your mystery wire is the fogs, because i've realised i've actually given you the fog plugs from my car, not the indicators lol.
