    Has anyone with the yellow Nokya bulbs had problems getting them to fit in the fogs? One of my Silverstars finally burned out so I figured I'd try the yellow bulbs, maybe I'm just developmentally challenged, but I can't get them in. I can go right back and put the ST bulb right back in no problem, but something doesn't seem to fit with these. Anyone else have an issue. I've seen on other forums for other vehicles that people had issues with Nokya bulbs not fitting properly.

    Finally got these dumb things in, but they certainly don't fit right. I even had my head stuck up under the fenderwell as far as I could lol and made sure the tabs were at the right place but something is keeping the bulb from going in far enough for it to properly lock into place, only way it would stay is with the bulbs pointing slightly down, which is now pointing light even with the headlights. When I changed my fog light bulbs before I did it without even looking and they went in fine. I like the look but gotta find something that's actually going to fit properly and not yellow blind people.

    EDIT: Stumbled on a post on here of someone saying the rubber gasket thingy is too big and they had issues getting them in til they swapped it out with the stocker. Never thought of that. Pulled the rubber gasket off my old bulbs and will try that tomorrow.

    Yes. DO that. I did it and it works. The rubber gasket is too big, take it from the stock ones and put in on the yellows. Works like a charm.

    Thanks guys. Had them in a few seconds after swapping the rubber gasket. Wish I had seen the posts about that earlier before struggling for an hour trying to get them in lol. Stupid tiny piece of rubber making the most simplest of tasks infuriating!
