Ballast exchange help
 
I need some help regarding the following problem..
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...31#post9416831

i've been having flickering problems with the driver side hid (aftermarket, mcculloch brand) and switched the bulbs and the problem did NOT follow, hence i concluded that it must be the ballast or ignitor.

now i know very little about these cars, and even less about electrical work, but have been able to switch the bulbs,etc. is it most likely the ballast since there is also a clicking sound coming from the problem side?

How do i go about fixing the ballast? it is a mcculloch aftermarket kit, so do i have to have that brand ballast or can i use just about any brand, generic?

.. how do i go about replacing the ballast? it is a mcculloch brand aftermarket hid. does it matter what brand the ballast is, etc??? where can i just get a ballast to replace it.

thanks for any advice

Have you tried swapping the ballast from one side to the other? If the ballast and igniters are separate, I would swap them individually to see which of the components is causing the issue.
