fog light help
ok...i'm on my 3rd set of fog lights bulbs in 2 months. one always blows out and no, i'm not touching the bulb. is the xenon just more fragile? someone said it might be my suspension that makes them blow out. please help, sick of changing them but dont want the dingy stock bulbs.

buy PIAA xtreme white. May be a little more expensive than what your buying, but they are reliable, durable, and are bright as a mother. They won't burn out like yours are. As for the suspension making them blow, I don't think it's that because the bulb is probably built to withstand being in the place the fogs are located, that's why there are H3's or whatever.

Hey man I had the same problem...I equated it to the foglight not being sealed properly after the new one went in...at least thats what toyota told me. So make sure you are getting that thing in there and sealed tightly. The bulb gets wet, it burns out. everytime I went through a car wash I had to redo the damn thing. The best thing you can do is go to the dealer and it should be under warranty. They'll hook you up thumbsup smile grin grin
