Just get a nail clipper and clip one of the little obtursions underneath the bulb...it'll work fine after that. Thats what i had to do. I believe all turn signal bulbs have to be altered to fit our cars.

Be sure and shave off the prong that is CLOSEST to the actual bulb, if you don't there is a chance the bulb will fall out into the headlight assembly which is an extreme pain to get out. If you do a search about this topic you will find many posts thumbsup
