Hi, I have only recently noticed that I have two different fog light grills, the RH one is blanked off while the LH one isn't, as shown in the photos. I am concerned because there is a cooler matrix in view through the LH grill which looks very vulnerable to damage should a stone go through the grill. is this the correct set up? I have looked on ebay and there does appear to be two different types, open for diesel and closed for petrol, does it make a difference?

The open one is for diesel cars which have intercoolers (one on each side in my V6, not sure about 2.0TDIs, but these probably have 2 as well).

So you should have 2 open grills, one on each side

If the grill is closed, the intercooler does not get cooled properly and your engine cannot perform at optimum levels.

These are not expensive (20 guid on ebay)

Good luck

Hi, there is an intercooler at the back of the vent, thanks for the explanation.
