    You sure they are blown? Sometimes my nearside one goes out, I just turn them off and turn them back on again, and its cleared and working again.

    check the voltages on both sides...but on saying that, most ballast will run from 9-18 volts...

    but the voltage should be equal either side give or take a volt.

    only had trouble with ballast in a bad location, not enough air moving round it (they condensate and get damp). Once I re-located them mine are fine .. 35W 6000K

    My poorly translated instructions mentioned fitting them in the breezy place.

    Mine were fitted within the wings which clearly didn't get the required breeze - didn't like the area under the headlights so mounded mine on the front crash member
