Re: Bulbs Got me Feeling like an idiot

once you get the stock bulb out compare the base (where the two metal contacts are) of the stock bulb and the new LED bulb. It may require slight trimming to make them the same width. I had to trim mine just a little bit inorder to get them installed.

Just a heads up.

No need for that if you order from the right place.

Re: Bulbs Got me Feeling like an idiot

I stuck a jeweler's flat head in and it popped right out. No rubber needle nose available.

Thats exactly where i got mine from. I purchased different versions than you did, but regardless i had to trim mine slightly to fit into the bulb socket. You'll see what im talking about if you compare the base size to the stock bulb.

Re: Bulbs Got me Feeling like an idiot

Bulbs might be more exspensive on VLEDS.com but well worth it. I bought them a couple at a time. Here and there an have almost completed everythin except for switchbacks (coming probably next week).
