5-1/2 year old local fog lamp. Our longest surviving unit. Third unit. Rusted, but not as badly as expected.

Took some time and effort to open as everything including the screws were rusted and stuck. And also a good amount of Rust Off.

The conked bulb. Phillips H3. Survived 5+ years. The unbranded bulb came with it wouldn't have survived a month or two.

Installed bulb and the pling moment [frustration]. The frame wasn't fitting in any way. Used the pliers to hammer it into place and hit the glass and broke it [confused]
