Aftermarket xenon ballast installed.

Hi all.

Progress report from fitting aftermarket ballast. SUCCESS!
All i needed to do was connect the red and black cables entering the renault ballast to the new on, (slimline model, 27.99), and it works perfectly, no errors, no hassle. Just needed to cut off the standard connectors on both ballast and headlamp, then connect them together using a crimper and butt-connector. If anyone wants to repeat this, you will need to get a new bulb-to-ballast cable to fit the new ballast. In short, you replace everything between the red and black headlight wires and the bulb.

I have added some pics. I cable tied the ballast in place, using a handy cross bar that held the original in place.
