Aftermarket xenon ballast installed.
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.
