The Difference Between H16 and 5202 Bulbs

We got an inquiry from our buyer on eBay store, he told us he want to buy a new LED fog light for his 2014 Toyota Corolla, but he had a bad experience before, he bought LED fog light from another seller, when he got the package and try to install it, he found it doesn’t fit, so he returned it back for refund, he afraid that he has same problem, so want to double check before he buy it.

So he ask us whether we 100% sure our H16 fit or not? We answered “Yes, we 100% sure our H16 will fit.” Later he paid for it.

After he got the package and installed, he told us there is no any problem, just plug and play, he is very satisfied with LASFIT LED bulbs and our service.

 

Why this buyer has confusion?

The problem is we find all aftermarket LED manufacturers to call the 5202 bulb an H16… This is wrong!

You will never see a Sylvania or Philips or other OEM bulb labeled as H16 that looks like 

a 5202.
From the below photos, you will find the H16 is quite different with 5202, the plug is different, cannot install same car.
Here is a photo to show their difference

 

Hope you learned the difference of H16 and 5202.

Next time, when you find your car fog light is H16, if the car is Japanese Vehicles (such as Toyota, Nissan, Lexus, Subaru), the fog light is H16(you can also use H11 to replace it), but if the car is American Vehicles (such as Chevrolet, GMC, Ford), then the fog light is 5202 instead of H16.
