Default Foglight replacement bulb

Passenger side foglight bulb went out, and i've been looking at most autopart websites, and i can't find a replacement bulb for this biatch. I don't want neon lights or blue lights ot whatever they're called now days, i just want a replacement bulb for my boring foglights ., does somebody knows the part number for the bulb, or a replacement that looks OEM ? I found from Silvanya a part# 5202, but they don't list the actual bulb, what that heck is going on with a simple bulb for my car foglight housing ? Lol

Thanks in advance.

I googled 5202 bulb;

http://www.payless-4-lighting.com/52...tm_content=pla

Sumbitches are expensive. I sold a set of those bulbs from my foglights on here for $15 or 20 shipped a little while back.

Thanks a lot Ben.
I'll post the part number on the bulb itself since i just removed it to see what that heck it was, and the one in the pic looks exactly like the one i have in my hands.

On the plastic housing of the bulb it reads
Phillips PA46-GF40
and then on the metal part it reads
PS224WFF
7L15VJ

Lots of other cars seem to use the same damn bulb
I found Ford uses the same bulb in their cars, trucks from 2008 and up, GM uses the same in their cars and trucks, VW in their cars, etc, etc.

Part#: 5202 (aka; 9009, H16, PS24W, P24W, PS24N, PS24WWJ645AB, 7201, 7202, PA46-GF40, PS24WFF)

The best site for all of your bulb info would be sylvania. But better yet here is a link http://www.sylvania.com/en-us/applic...el=959&make=75

Thanks Monte, that was my first try, Sylvania list the part# as 5202 but they don't have it available, nor any of autoparts online.
I found online a GM part# that seems to be the 5202 bulb, GM# 15839897

$14.10 from Amazon, ordering now

I picked mine up from Oriely's a few weeks ago, they had them in the back not out with the other bulbs. Auto zone didn't have them. From what I read make sure you are getting a 25 Watt bulb. Anything higher will melt the housing.

My fog light bulb blew out in October. I called the GM / Pontiac dealership I use for service and they had the bulb for $64 + tax (parts department). WTF! My friend told me his new Camaro takes the same bulb, so I decided to call the Chevy dealer and they had it in-stock for $30 + tax. I purchased it then at the Chevy parts dept but I'm gonna head over to Amazon and order a 'spare' for that price.

Got the bulb yesterday afternoon in the mail, came in ACdelco box and everything so it's was a real deal for $14.10, ($15 and change with tax OTD, and 2 days free shipping from Amazon, but i do have a prime account )called 2 Chevy dealers around, one wanted $54, the other $38, i told them both it was a damn fog light, not the entire assembly , i didn't know this thing was so expensive until you guys started posting prices, and then i started checking online.

I know its a light late, but Putco make a foglight for our vehicles. Been thinking about ordering a set of these Putco's soon. See here: http://www.pfyc.com/pc/GN1005/G8/GM+...ght+Bulbs.html. CAUTION: These bulbs do not match the light output of the factory bulbs.

What is the voltage on these? There have been posts about some Putco bulbs melting the housings.
