LED Fog Light Bulb Replacement

I just received my LED fog Light Replacement bulbs from Vleds, tried to install them today, do not want to lock into place, anyone else tried these yet? and if so did they fit for you?
ordered there 2504 6000k 10 Led fog light replacement bulbs, look like quality bulbs

LED Fog Light Bulb Replacement

I ended up pulling my front wheels off, and pulling back inner fender liner to remove fog lamp assemblies to figure out why the LED bulbs would not lock into place.
I found that 3 little alignment tabs did not align properly had to trim them off, still did not lock in, removed O-ring from LED bulb and locked in nicely, found it to be to tight with O-ring in place, ended up using my Dremel tool slightly make the hole larger in the plastic fog light housing, did not want to go without O-ring and moisture issue in lamp, hope this will help others.
Now that's LED fogs are installed look great with my LED headlights

Last photo shows LED fog light on passenger side and factory bulb on drivers side, what a great improvement in daylight, can not wait to try them out in the dark

Re: LED Fog Light Bulb Replacement

ive found every globe avail other than genuine jeep sourced is different. it would have been easier to look at the bases of the two globes and you would have found your issue. most globes have the locating lugs in different positions requiring trimming.

I did find the issue with the tabs when comparing both bulbs, trimmed tabs but was still having trouble to fit, but thanks for the info, will always check that first from now on
