Damn Fog Light Bulbs!

Ok, I am running 9145 Silverstar bulbs in my foglights and I also did the foglight mod. Like last month or so my driver's side bulb blew... so I changed it np. Now my passenger side blew today! Now idk what the problem is but those bulbs are getting kinda pricey when I dont have the money.... Last Fall I hit a deer and I had to get a whole new frontend from the hood down and Im wondering if they did something or am I using a bad bulb. Bad ground err something? PLEASE HELP!

I've found the same goes for all vehicle lamps.When one side dies.buy two cause the other side isn't far behind.Both sides have been burning the same amount of time.They don't last forever.

No Problem.....well......there's a little bit of a wiggle to get it to fit into their notches. I don't remember which side is a bigger PITA, but I believe the driver side is a bigger PITA for some odd reason. Wiggle here, wiggle there, they'll go in.

when i first converted my fogs to the 9005 bulbs i had to really work the bulb until they got seated into place. but, after that, when i had to replace them, they just slipped right into place!
