Destined to not have foglights that fit correctly - update: installed #18 post

I got my Noyka Yellows today to give it a try since others have reported that Putco's fogs have issues with the tabs...well Noyka's have the same problems.

That's just too bad, different manufacturers with the same issues





Only things that's correct is the single middle tab on left side and two tabs on the right side.





ETA: Noyka's have the bottom 2 tabs also, compared to OEM that does not.

Re: Destined to not have foglights that fit correctly

Give it time and I'm sure you'll be able to get some that fit correctly. If not just jerry-rig it.

Have you tried or pondered the idea of using an HID 3K kit?

If you're just using them for DRL's I guess it would be ok but don't buy them for output. What color LED's are you trying to get?

Re: Destined to not have foglights that fit correctly

Have you tried shaving down the 3 outside tabs? I have read of others doing that and having them work. Of course, I shaved down the 3 outside tabs on my Putcos and they fit in the socket, but are still really loose when snapped in.

maybe if i can't return it, i bought it on fleabay. i don't want to risk it being loose either, all it takes is some moisture seeping in because of a bad seal and it explodes inside - therefore it becomes a white powder mess that's fused on the lenses.

Like bmrisko mentioned, you could do that plus buy a rubber housing cap to prevent the moisture from compromising the fixture.

If know any kind of fabrication you could maybe try to buy some of the yellow Lexus capsules and rig them to your housing that goes over the bulb so you could still use a white bulb and get the yellow you want or combine it with a yellow bulb. If you haven't seen them this is what they look like,

He's referring to if he had to file the tabs to make it fit, then the fit wouldn't be as secure as normal and moisture could and/or would get in.

i will check it out, but space is tight - i know there's lamex or however it's spelled, it's a film coating applied to the lens.

True, I thought about a film as well but thought I wouldn't like the yellow appearance during the day time but would rather have the wow factor at night lol.
