Re: FogLight Bulbs

a 65 watt 9005 bulb fits in the fog light and replaces the 42 watt 9145. i used silverstars but any 9005 will work (ie. if you want that real blue tint)

Sometimes depending on color temperature it can be extremely reduced.

Re: FogLight Bulbs

what does the 9005 in the name actually mean?? Does this refer to size?? And are all 9005's the same?

Re: FogLight Bulbs

9005 is the bulb number...i believe it is a common GM high beam. when you go look at the bulbs it will become obvious....

Re: FogLight Bulbs

Will using a 9005 bulb in the foglights cause excessive heat or any problems? Thanks!

Re: FogLight Bulbs

Best bulb choice is the Hella Replacement 9005/HB3 Bulb, 12V, 65W +100%, Hella High Performance Xenon Blue..4k kelvin. I have been running them for years.

Re: FogLight Bulbs

Not to hi-jack, but how do you get to the foglamps?

Four screws on top and 4 spring clips at the bottom. Then reach down behind the bumper, grab the lamp base and turn.
