2010 headlight service with HID and ATS lights
I had the right headlight go out and am having trouble getting it fixed or even finding anyone who will work on it. The right light went out, then worked again for a week, then went out. I replaced the bulb but no joy. From what I've read the likely problem is the ballast. Since I can't even see the ballast I tried a local dealer who said they have to remove the bumper cover to access the ballast but they don't stock them so not much sense in taking it to them if they can't even fix it in one visit (Seems like a pretty stupid design). Tried the local Goodyear service who looked at it, said they think it is the ballast since I already replaced the buld with no effect, but they can't work on it since you have to take off the bumper cover.
1) How hard is it to take off the bumper cover
2) Once off is it easy to service the ballast and is there anyway to test it to make sure it is the problem first?
