    Fog light's out (warranty ?)

    I bought my '04 Rex last April, has about 15,000 miles on it. The other day, the right fog light went out, I bought the car new, have the warranty, is this covered? I ask because it's been less than a year, I know I shouldn't have to replace the bulb that fast.
    Thanks in advance,
    woody

    Thanks for the posts.
    What's the difference between stockers and syvana silver star bulbs?
    Pics would be nice too
    What did you mean at the end about OE? I was kinda unsure.

    ok silver star is blue like and shine white on the road and gain of some distance on the roadas well. ok stock yellow yuck can't see very well but good side to side a bit. I have all 4 silverstar. HID not currently on the car due to wiring problem. hid will out shine fogs to the point turn off or no no differance . But with stock 02 fogs big differance for oe bulbs. I noticed pepboys and simular places starting to carry the bulbs if you don't want to wait for ebay.

    FYI - I have also heard very good things about Narva Gold H3's. I just got a set and they seem to project a very nice yellow/gold light.

    Then again, I guess it also depends on whether you want something more akin to driving lights (whiter light with a farther projection pattern) vs. fog lights (yellow light for better definition in poor visability conditions).

    Dealer should fix it.

    Wear items include wiper blades, tires, batteries, oil etc... not bulbs.

    I work for a service department (Acura) and replace bulbs all the time under warranty.
