9006 should only fit in one of the two holes. I think they are for hi only. 9005 for low. Or it'* viseversa..

EDIT: 9005 High'* 9006 Lows

9006 is for the lows, and they are on the outside of the lamp... 9005 will be the highs and that will be the center bulb....

Good Luck

The fogs (original), remove the connector and then rotate the bulb counter clock wise. Remember you are looking at the assembly backwards. Reverse procedure to put the new one in. BIG THING!!! Like the headlights...do not touch the glass of the bulb with your fingers or the oil will cause them to burn hotter and burn out in record time.

or replace your fogs with 885'* stead of standard 880'*.. but be forwarned bout possible burnin of the lens if it'* plastic.. or if you're planning on a lot of stop and go rush hour style traffic that may not have enough air to cool it down some.
