Hello, I Bought a Mazda 6 2019 recently... and it has 1 reverse light. (Picture) : The Right one is a reverse light .. and The Left one is a rear fog light . Is there a way to remove the rear fog light and install a similar reverse light so the car has 2 reverse lights? or is that impossible ?

Thank you for writing in. You can certainly wire another bulb to the circuit so that they both illuminate when the reverse lights are turned on. You will want to make sure that it is a similarly rated bulb as the reverse light. You will also want to make sure the bulb you replace it with fits in the housing that the reverse light is fitting in. Make sure any new electrical connections are clean, dry, and tight to prevent any future problems. Also make sure that adding another bulb to the circuit doesn't pull too much voltage and cause dimming in the other reverse light. In all, it may be more work than it is worth, but that is a personal decision you will have to make.
