Been searching for a long time trying to find out what type of bulb it is to replace the front fog light bulb. Anyone help? [thumleft]

JDM Steering fogs take an H3c lamp which has two connectors on the rear.

The more common H3 lamp, which I believe is fitted to UK n/a models, only has one connector on the rear.

I'm afraid I don't know if non steering JDM fogs use the H3c or the H3.

Thanks for the response buddy. I think the best thing to do is take the fog light out and have a look for myself so I order the right one [thumleft]

If you've not taken them off before the screws can be real pain to remove and you may have to resort to drilling them out, being careful not to damage the plastic housing.

I replaced the screws with alan bolts on mine to make life a bit easier in future. Which was just as well. When I recently fitted night breaker bulbs in the headlamps, it made the fogs look distinctly yellowish in comparison, so I'll be changing the lamps on the fogs soon to get a better match.

Normal H3 bulbs will work in the steering fogs if you just add an earth wire

Then you can put the new wires lucar connector into the earth wire that was on bulb and the positive one to the H3 bulb (I forgot to take a finished result picture when I fitted the PIAA bulbs [d'oh!] )

JDM rev3 steering fog lights use a H3c bulb. I needed them last year and they were difficult to find so I ordered them from Toyota no problem.

If you stay with H3C bulbs, it will help the fog light beam alignment if you do the job with the steering wheel straight. If you forget to do that, when you switch on the fog lights in steering mode they will be offset to one side. (To get them straight again, put the switch in the straight ahead position, straighten the steering wheel and pull the Fog lamp fuses to reset the centred position for steering mode).

Good idea to see what is currently fitted before ordering bulbs as a previous owner may have done a mod like the one Pauln did. Highly likely will need to drill out the screws to get the fog lights out.
