We have heard of the footwell module requiring reprogramming to stop inexplicable electrical gremlins - not 'common', but also not unheard of.

The light is still on the dash. (see picture)

I have a code reader but its not showing any codes?

Is it normal that only the top half of the fog light lights up? (see picture)

All the lights are working including the little lights in the wheel arch trim and the lights on the number plate.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Depending on how your MINI was equipped, that light is either a parking light only (top half only), or a parking light / fog light combination - see this product page.

If you only have a plug for one bulb, you probably have the parking light only and it is normal for the top half to illuminate.

Both front lights are only half illuminated, i took the bulb out rotated it 180 degrees and put it in again and it's the same result, just half illuminated.

I can't help with codes etc.

Re the shape of the illuminated fog light: Doesn't look right to me. What does the other one look like? is it round or half too?
Visually, I'd suspect the bulb holder is not inserted fully/correctly or the bulb itself is not properly seated in the holder.
