turn signal bulbs

i read here that the front turn signal bulbs are 1156 size..well i bought a pair of hyperwhite signals and turns out the 1156 doesnt fit. on a regular 1156 the notches are horizontal..like -O-..but on the stock bulb the notches are kind of angled so i can't slip the bulb in..anyone else having this problem? anyone know any bulbs i can put in instead or someway to fix this?

The M7 (Size 1156) is correct for the 2000-UP Toyota Celica turn signal... I know this sounds crazy, but all 1156 bulbs, wherever you buy them from, are the same shape - they need to be modified for installation into the 2000-up celica.

Here are three 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 use a nail clipper to clip that "nub" off (or using a cement wall or curb to rub it off also works well). Your bulbs will then fit correctly

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