Generally the ballast is a separate box that is external to the headlight unit. HIDs4U does slim fit kits especially for motorcycles.
You may have to modify the bulb holder to get the cables through to the new HID bulb.

The headlights do not respond fast when i switch them on.they take coupel of seconds to lite


If they are HID lights this is normal. The balast has to energize the bulbs.

My right side headlight not working on A4, 2007. Install new H7 bulb from Audi but it did not work. I install the right bulb into the drivers side and it work. I suspect an electrical problem. Possible no...


if it is a hid light system they are famous for the balast going bad. follow the wires from light bulb. if they go into a box then its a hid system and it is the balast box that needs to be replaced. also check the fuses, sometimes there are seperate fuses for each headlight.

I've replaced the bulb, the passenger side headlight is still out. My feeling is the problem is electrical but I'm not sure.


Im assuming that you have check the fuses for the headlights and they are good.If your headlight is HID(Hight Intenstiy Discharge Xenon bulb) The headlight assembly will have a balast that might be defective.Deferentiating the Halogen from HID.Halogen will have a yellowish color when you turn on the headlights whereas the HID will have a whitesh to bluesh in color.If your clk320 does have a halogen then its highly probable you have an electrical problem but if its HID then you might want to replace the balast.

Headlights on a 2003 yamaha r6


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, only one beam works, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, then check your head light bulb socket ground wire for a clean tight connection, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn down solder contacts or loose fit of the bulb base in the socket due to vibration.
3. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
4. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
5. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
8. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
9. Weak charging alternator/generator.
10. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier ground or overcharging.

I replaced my main bulbs with hid xenon in my 98 range rover hse


First let me just explain something about putting HID bulbs in a reflector headlight, then I'll get to answering your question. High end cars use something called a projector with their HID bulbs and these projectors focus the light into patterns that won't blind other drivers with very perfect cutoffs (no light goes above a certain line). To retrofit a projector into your stock housing it takes a lot of work and careful measurements and thus a lot of time. But this is the only way to do a HID retrofit the right way.
Putting a HID kit into a reflector housing as you did, also makes light scatter everywhere, which creates many hotspots or high concentrations of light that make it much more difficult to see the road. Not only do HID kits in relfector housings make it more difficult to see, they are hugely illegal, and can/may get you pulled over and ticketed by a police officer. 
The best thing you could do insted of putting a HID kit in your relfector housing is to get higher wattage bulbs, OSRAM makes some great H4 overwattage bulbs. http://www.rallylights.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=6
If you purchase from rally lights (you need to purchase them in sets of two( I wouldn't go over 85/80 watt bulbs because it could melt your housing.)
Also make sure your headlights with stock bulbs are aligned correctly, most of the time this alone makes a huge difference as headlights droop over the years. 
If you are set on using your HID Kit illegally and blinding all other drivers on the road and willing to live with the risk of getting pulled over by any cop you run into. You will need to figure out how to trick ecu into thinking regular headlights are being used because its detecting the power being drawn for your HID lights to be a fault in the system that needs to be replaced. You can do this by wiring in a 55watt resistor to the circuit.
