    • H16 bulb comes in two different “styles” despite bearing the same exact name.

      H16 Type 1, L-shaped with nested plug pins, will fit H8 / H9 / H11 sockets (check wattage).

      H16 Type 2, T-shaped, is the newer version, equivalent to bulb number 5202, 2504, PSX24W, PS24W, 5201, and 9009.
