Use a metal file and file down one of the prongs. File the prong that is CLOSEST to the actual bulb, if you file the other one down the light has a good chance of falling out, and if it falls out in the headlight assembly I've heard it's a huge pain to get out. Oh and one last note, this question has been asked a whole lot so to save everyone and yourself a lot of time just do a search on the forums before you post a question thumbsup

Here are a few links to different discussions concerning the 1156 Turn Signal bulbs.

Install is simple, just choose what connector on the bulb that you do not want, and using a cement wall or curb to rub it off also works well (or use a nail clipper to clip that "nub" off) Your bulbs will then fit perfectly.

If you take out your factory bulbs and inspect them - you will see that they came with a "nub" on either side at one time or another. Then that extra nub was removed so that it would fit into the socket correctly... Go look at your stock light bulb and see for yourself thumbsup

This is the same technique that everyone uses to install aftermarket 1156/M7 bulbs.
