On the housing that hold the lights in place will be an SAE number. If you do a Google search for that number, or consult an auto parts store, you'll find out what manufacturer made that light assembly. Most often it will match up with a production vehicle that will have multiple sources, including Amazon or eBay.

You say driving, maybe meaning add-on lights? I have a 94 vehicle w/ glass rectangular sealed-beam headlights, still worked, thought "what can be wrong, cannot see?" Finally decided to try new, and when retainer removed from front, the lens fell off in my hands with glue failure, (BOTH bulbbs), inspection found elements STILL BURNING and no SILVER reflector remaining on back glass, it was clear glass on the back. AMAZING?? :-) :-(

Bob . thanks but? there is no numbers to be found on the housing/ Wish I knew how to post a picture of housing. I have it in hand, but the light itself is history. I am going to get to storage soon and pull the other side to see if I can find any numbers etc.

TH. no these are little round light below the head lights they turn on with ignition, at least they used to? the one still kinda works the other fried itself some time back.

Thanks all

Where did you upload the photos? to post a photo, copy the address of the photo. On the box to post a thread, click on the yellow icon of a mountain and moon(?) and a window will pop open and you paste the address of the photo in the window.

I looked at photos of a 2005 Gulf Stream Sun Voyager, by driving lights I guess you're referring to the small round lights below the headlights. I'm sure the headlight assembly has SAE numbers that would identify it, but the smaller lights perhaps not. I'd remove one of the light assemblies and see if you can identify it, then shop for bulbs to replace them. Driving or fog lights often are available aftermarket and you might find them by taking a photo of the light and mount on a plain background and do a Google Image search. I've had success finding parts using that method.

The 'F' is SAE label for front fog lights. They may be driving lights, but are labeled 'fog.' 4 inches in diameter, I don't know if you can find them, might look in a salvage yard at Chevy Blazer fog lights.

I replaced my headlight assemblies last spring. I used a company that easily knew what I need. They were also very affordable. Installation was a snap.

Fog lights are different than driving lights.

Thanks, Mr. Obvious I just pointed out the 'F' notation in the SAE number says 'Front Fog.' Not all fog lights are yellow.

Driving lights

These lights I purchased from O'rileys auto, were to replace the lower fog lights on my unit, whiche also help with my dim driving loghts.

Wasn't responding to you, slick. OP mistakenly referred to them as driving lights. Yes, you did point out the F means fog.
