Look in the socket. There is an inner sleeve to the socket. If that sleeve comes out a bit then the bulb does't make contact. Happens on mine all the time.

I wouldn't use 205/40R17 as the difference is greater than the acceptable variance of 3%. Stick to 205/50R17.

It's never a problem helping people who appreciate the help. Good of you to follow up with results and updates instead of leaving it hanging like some people do once it's fixed.

Hey, glad to hear you've narrowed it down to just a component or two. At least you're in the ball park now. You'll have it solved in no time. You may want to check the pulleys and tensioners too.

LOL, I don't mean take it for a drive. Should be ok to run it for 20-30 seconds from cold. That's long enough to see if the sound is still there or not.
