2011 fog lights

Is the ps24w (the GM fog light bulb) the same as the psx24w? I can't seem to find the psx24w online so I might get the GM kind.

I also found out that the py24w is a yellow bulb that is used in BMW's for turn signals so that could be an option.

The bulb itself is pretty much the same but the base is differently "coded" (PS24W --> PG20-3 Base, PSX24W --> PG20-7 Base) so it may not fit without modifications/removal of the coding tab(s).

I just got the bulb in the mail and it is the exact same but with different coding tabs like you said. I just shaved them off and it works fine.

I just found out that the H3 bulb should replace the factory PSX24W. Hope this helps someone.

Hmmm lets see,
PSX24W


H3



Do you still think you can just simply replace it with a H3 Bulb?

you can use a h16 bulb, but you have to cut off several tabs on the new bulb's plastic housing to get it to work

NOPE... There must have been some work to get it to work... Not sure.

Yeah might be but I doubt that the filament position within the reflector will be the same thus it may create an "out of focus" condition which, if the fog light is actually used for its purpose in foggy condition, can cause unwanted reflections back to the driver thus having a detrimental effect on visibility.

the filament is pretty much in the exact same position. the lighting spread and output with the yellow nokya h16 bulbs i put in was exactly the same as the stock bulbs, only a different color. you can always adjust the fogs too.
