Re: Halogen fog light replacement

Halogen performance bulbs are typically more of a cosmetic upgrade than a functional one given that they operate on the same wattage as your stock bulbs. I would not suggest going with higher wattage bulbs either as these bulbs burn hotter and can damage your vehicle. However, I actually have the Putco Jet Yellow halogen bulbs installed in my fogs and absolutely love them! Even though they are rated at the same wattage as the stock fog lights I find the yellow light output VERY helpful in rain and fog.

If you are considering upgrading your fogs with an HID kit take a look at this very helpful DIY guide:

So there are no options to upgrade the fogs to something at least a little whiter? I have HID's but I'm looking to get them closer in color without purchasing an entire kit, which looks like a PITA to install.

Re: Halogen fog light replacement

Deception,

Take a look at this page. Putco just came out with a new bulb that is whiter and apparently brighter than the OEM bulb. Check out all the ALL NEW "Night White":

Re: Halogen fog light replacement

Hi,

The fitment for the fog lights would be 5202 and the fitment for the high beams is 9005.

Regards,

Steve

Re: Halogen fog light replacement

I did it. It hurt like hell but it's done. I used an white 18 led bulb http://www.ebay.com/itm/150612133708...84.m1497.l2649 Behind the front of the wheel well at the bottom there is a clip you have to turn. Then stick your hand up through the whole and find the fog light. Unplug the fog light. Pinch the clips together and pull the light straight back. The hard part is putting the light back in. You are going to have to look up through the bottom to see how the slots line up. Push the light in until it clicks. Plug the light back in. Finished. I don't like this bulb because it is too blue compared to the headlights. I should have used a yellow bulb http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NOKYA...item33680eb5ed but I wanted the whole front end to be silver, chrome and clear. If i get the energy I might switch it later. Hope this helps. Will add pictures later.
