86 Jetta front turnsignals.

I have been looking for a pair of new(er) front turn signals and finally located some supposedly us spec units. Unfortunately they are not. The socket doesn't fit the bulb holders on my 86 US Jetta diesel.Image

These units are great except for the fact that the bulb sockets don't fit.

Looks like a Ford socket will fit.
Take them down to NAPA and see if they have a bulb holder that fits.
Then you'd have to cut and splice wires.

Those fit into the metal small bumper right?

Small bumper? They are rubber coated but don't have the lower extension like I have seem on some.

I think I have found a decent workaround I glued in some printed adapters. Thanks for the advice

Thanks.

I have to ask, is my car a small bumper?

Are the sockets for a different model of vw.
