I'd be tempted to put those new bulbs into your fog light sockets (which I also believe are H7)
If they do the same thing - then you know that the bulbs are bad.

Do DRL not run off 12V?

My guess is that your LEDs have a short or broken wire somewhere. LED AEs should be plug and play.

lol kinda a funny thread title.

Do it yourself, it's a great learning experience.
You should budget about an hour of time. This will allow you to take things really slow.

Good luck

I think I'm understanding you. So you are saying there are two sets of o-rings that sit on the nipple of the air spring connector.

Could you make your own using on of those o-ring kits?...
