Default Fog lamp replacement

Okay, first off, this site has caused me to not get any work done today. Spent all day reading about my 2000 SE, learned alot.

Problem: I need to replace a fog lamp bulb. Doesn't appear to be to difficult a job. My question is, is the bulb pretty standard or is this something I will need to get from my dealer. Would like to have bulb in hand before starting job so I can finish job.

Great. If I can get them at WalMart, Autozone, or Pep Boys, I'll be changing them this weekend.

Just a suggestion you could get yourslef some aftermarket fog lamps for $40-60 and they are a lot brigter, there 55w compared to stock is 22.5 I think. I bought the Angle eye ones and am very happy they light up the road way more than my headlights. just a suggestion.

Other here seem very happy with the Blaxertech 3200'* and the Pilot Naviagtors. These can be found online or some at Pepboys of walmart and such. Does cost more but the extra wattage is worth it. Got mine at pepboys.

They offer a 55W bulb in that part number config, (pulg/keying) Just look in the bulb rack. So they are brighter and look stock so no one f'es with you.

This sounds like the way I may go, but will using the higher wattage cause me a fusing problem?

I gotta say again, I'm new here but this is a great site.

No, it wont cause fusing problems, but will cause overheating and some melting of the fog lamp lenses over time. Don't go higher than 35W+/- with stock lenses.

Jay, good point, definately don't want to melt anything and I'm not looking to replace the lenses. At least not right now.
