if its original the foglight is part of the head light. If face lift they are small round lights built into the bumper. Access from behind the unit.

To try and save the OP from Lacken's duf info!

The original 147 has a separate front indicator, that is JUST an indicator, nothing else.
The headlight unit contains: Main beam (H7), Dip beam (H7), Fog light (H1), Side light (H6W).

I don't have a normal handbook for an original 147 (you may have) but it will say in there.

It is done from behind.
eLearn says to remove the undertray and access it from there.
Normal twist & remove bulb holder.

You do have front fog lights, but front fog lights are not currently part of the UK MOT.

Have you checked the bulbs yourself?
