I've searched and have found nothing yet. Maybe I was just using the wrong words.

That being said, the driver's side pre-facelift coupe headlight's Ballast is not attached to the back of the headlight like the passengers side. I have removed the passenger's side however I don't know how to get the driver's side due to the ballast. I have found screws on the side of the ballast but I have no screwdriver to get to it. Is there any easier way?

The black tube is the intake and the white on the side is the bumper holder.


View from above.


put the camera behind the reinforcement bar.


Another side view: black tube is the intake



EDIT: After more searching, I think mine is only this way because of the DINAN intake.

I'm not sure.... go to www.realoem.com and type in your VIN and look up the parts related to the driver side head light... that way you can do a better search as well as have a picture diagram of the parts your working with...

hope that helps....

The ballast was not connected to the headlight however it was screwed down on the house of the DINAN intake. I don't know if all DINAN's have these here but mine did and it was a PITA to get out.
