Fog Light Bulb Replacement Info:

Post by mattie » Tue Mar 06, 2007 8:22 am

I was putzing around at work and did some research on replacement bulbs and this is what i came up with:

Wagner bulb numbers

881 - 43.00 candlelight power "stock replacement fog light"
881bk - 45.00 candlelight power
898 - 60.00 candlelight power
893 - 75.00 candlelight power
893bk - 75.00 candlelight power
886 - 100.00 candlelight power

Obviously the higher the candlelight power, the greater wattage is required. I figured since I need a new fog light bulb, I would see if there are other options. Have Fun!

98 R/T: CAI, 55mm tb, mid-length header, Megan racing UDP, solid motor mounts, rear booger bobble strut, KYB struts, lowering springs, autometer gauges (oil pressure/temp, water temp, pyrometer), 3.55 tranny

The 886 aren't 100 watt, they are about 50 watts each. The OEM bulbs are about 30 watts each.

That's about 2.5 amps each for the stock 881, and about 4 amps each for the 886. Note that the 886, a driving light bulb, does not have the blackened end that the 881 has, so it may cause more glare.

I have run 886 bulbs in my car for six years, and have not had any problems with fuse blowing, wire melting, or housing warping.

Daniel Stern's tech info is a good source, too. Surf around his site and check out the various tech articles.
