Dumb rear fog lights

There was fog a couple of weeks ago. So I thought I'd use my fog lights front and rear. One of the rears appeared to be broken. So today I got round to fix it.

Symptoms: left rear fog not working



Ahhh, maybe bulb was blown.



WTF. two bulbs on the right. But only one on the left ???!!!



It's now obvious that was how the rear fogs were supposed to be, and nothing was broken. Feeling a bit sheepish, I looked around to see what else I could do. I found lots of cabling on the trunk lid that could be source of rattles, and the bump-stop for the lid wasn't optimal. So I taped up everything and adjusted everything. Now I am absolute sure there could be no noises from the trunk lid. This wasn't what I set out to do. But it was satisfying fixing up the very last place on the rear of my car that could squeak or rattle.
