Right daytime running light is out

Believe that it's #8 in the diagram -- "run lamp bulb". Presume that's all that I'll need. Anyone confirm? Thanks.

Halos are #11, that's what you need.
#8 is the "cornering/signal illumination" light

Sorry, but they're calling #11 the "high beam bulb", #8 the "run lamp bulb". ?

making it easier for you:

Halo's = H8 bulb
the corner bulb that comes on when you signal and make a turn = H3

you have bi-xenons, so there's a shutter inside the low beam.

Mine just went out as well. Funny, when my battery went bad and I did a forum search, your post came up for that as well.
Hope there isn't a curse!
Cheers!

You have an '08 as well. Looks like they've got a life span of about 5 years.

My opposite side is out now. Went out less than a week after the first. You might consider addressing both at the same time.

FWIW, O'Reilly Auto Parts carries an H8 bulb for $7 and it works great.

That's worth about $20 in savings. Thanks man.

Their parts lookup was totally clueless on this application, I had to ask for H8 bulbs specifically
