My 16 came with 9012's. Didn't realize that until i had 9005 xd kit ordered. Xd assured me they would work, and they did, but i did need to trim the tabs for the correct orientation to get rid of the dead spot. And then i also had to spend some time in front of my garage door at night moving the bulbs in the housing because they had room to adjust and it made a big difference where the hot spot in the light output would go. About a year and 24k now with no issues and very happy with the final product, despite some troubleshooting in the beginning.
Yes, tabs can be trimmed to make 9005s fit in a 9012 socket pattern, or 9006s to fit in a 9005 socket, or 9012s to fit in a 9005 socket, etc... because they all share a basic tab geometry (3 tabs separated by 120°, with similar shapes). It's just the tab width and height that create a difference from one bulb type to another. Housings are designed to fit one bulb type, so trying to cheat with a different tab configuration requires a little trimming, and usually trimming one tab will do fine.
Pics of the dead spot moved to the 7 o clock spot and the bulb line is actually at the 1 o clock spot.
Yep, so to correct this you need the bulb to rotate 180° (roughly) in the housing, to move/rotate the wire down. Easier said than done, I know...
Since I have no pics of the XD 9005s and no pics of your bulb housings, I can only suggest this (similar to what XD told you) :
Trim the widest tab down a little bit, on both sides. Not much, maybe just over 1/16" per side. Use a Dremmel if you have one, with a cutting wheel or a grinding cone. Using cutting plyers (like wire cutters) can cause the whole bulb casing to crack...
So once you've shaved a total of 1/8" try inserting the bulb again, 180° from how it was before. If it really won't go in fully (all 3 tabs must go in), then shave a tiny bit more off that same tab, and try again. When it does go in, twist into position and connect the wires.
And remember : the connector on the bulb can be at any position inside the headlamp, no worries, the wiring is long enough so can be connected with the bulb in any position.
Once you get through this step and finally set the bulbs into the new position, the dead spot (shadow) will be gone..
