Strange Spider Foglights

I've got a phase 2 spider 2.0TS that I bought a few months ago as an MOT failure and I'm just doing the work it needs on the failure sheet and finding loads of other things it needs too.

One of the things that doesn't work are the front fogs. They weren't on the fail sheet. When I had a look at them, one side only has the connector. There's nothing in the fog light housing. The other side has the bulb holder part of the fog light dangling down inside the rear bumper, but it won't fit on the fog light!

So, are the fog lights on the MOT? Will it fail without them working? And are Phase one and two fog lights different and bumpers the same? The front bumper isn't quite on straight so I'm thinking it could have been replaced with a phase one at some point and the fog lights not swapped over.

Nothing is straight forward with this car. it looks like the PO was skint and did everything as cheaply as possible

The fog lights have been left on with the car stationary and the plastic has melted. Known problem.

There is no difference between P1 & P2 bumpers or foglights although there are different variants of bumper ( TS, V6, V6 TB etc ). Only the P3 changed in a significant manner.

Front Fog lights are not an MOT item.
Working or not, they are not checked.
