ECELICA STORE BULBS DIDNT FIT
I ordered the bulbs to replace my blinkers and when i went to install them they didnt fit the slots the light go into. THe plastic insert that the power chord goes into has two slots for litte nubbins on the side of the bulb to lock into place with. The slots on the light are about 120 degrees apart and the ones on the bulb i ordered where 180 degrees across from eachother so they wouldt go in.

I konw this is confusing unless it has happened to you, but i needed to vent

you have to shave one of the nubs on the bulb down...i had to do that with my PIAA's cause Toyota has some weird bulbs.

GTS02, isnt there an topic when you buy the bulbs that says they fit, they just need adjustment, oh ya, check the installs section, i looked at that before i buy anything just to make sure what im buying will fit

If you don't want to sand down the nub, put them in like this. Put in the first nub holding the bulb at about a 45 degree angle to the holder, then twist it and the other one should slip into place.
