I'm in the process of reverting my tail lights back to standard on my 997.1 (previous owner fitted LED type) however I am having a struggle working out all of the correct bulbs - can anyone help please?

The offending bulb appears to be a staggered 15mm bulb with single contact point as per the image below. Am i going mad or is this type of bulb rarer then hens teeth?

I went a step further and ordered all 4 bulb sets from them and only 2 out of the 4 were correct fitment. Even after the email exchange they seem baffled..

oh dear, well at least we know not to use them as a guide in future. I can remember another car having staggered pins so not that rare. Might be one for the local car shop?

They have given you the wrong lamp type...

they sent you a BA15s lamp.

you need a BAY15s lamp type.

hope that helps you.
