Tools required: Philips head screwdriver, side cutters

Ensure your lights have been off for a little while before starting this mod! (otherwise you may burn yourself)

Here is a picture of the PS24W Bulbs (GTS SPEC):

Turn your steering wheel to allow access to the inner guard. Locate and unscrew the clips that hold the inner guard in. A half turn then use fingernails or a flat head to pry the clips out.

Pull the inner guard back, and you can clearly see the stock bulb with a torch.

Push the tabs on the top and bottom firmly, and then pull the globe straight out.

Unclip the bulb. Here we compare the stock bulb vs the aftermarket (remember these will look a little different on the GT model). Please note that aftermarket LED bulbs all have the tabs in a slightly different spot. These aren't really required anyway, so just trim them off with side cutters:

When you go to plug the bulb in, ensure the tab on the side lines up, disregard the other tabs.

Test that the bulb works:

Push the bulb into its location, ensure the top and bottom tab locks in. Hold the front of the foglight with your other hand to stabilise it, and push the rear in until you hear the tabs click in:

Are the halogens better for vision than the LEDs? If they light up a similar amount I will get a set. I live in Bathurst and work in Orange which in the cooler months is a dark foggy trip.

Those clips are a huge bitch on the stock bulbs! When I pressed down on both to remove it from the housing both of them snapped off on one of the bulbs >_< So now I've got to get in there and cut the rest of the clips holding it in to be able to replace it, quite annoying :/

 

Once I sort that out this weekend I'll post some pics as well :D

I forgot to write in this guide how delicate they are.. I mentioned it in the HID guide, cos I broke mine myself lol

 

heres the bit I mentioned in the HID upgrade guide :

To release the bulb push the top and bottom tab. They are very delicate to be careful.

U mentioned...GTS: 5202 (PS24W), but in your price listing post says 3W? Refers to 3watts I assume?

And PS24W is 24 watts? Confused... Wanted exactly wat MAI86 got installed.:)

 

 

He got the 3W.. We have 6W versions coming as well, however they are still in transit and will be an extra $10-%15, it starts bordering on HID territory for cost, however are much simpler.

 

 

Sweep, the Halogens are brighter than the LEDs, this mod will mainly be for cosmetic improvement, if you want extra light output get the HID upgrade.
