Default Thanks buddy.

I'll try swapping ballast/ignitor side to side and see what happens....

I'm pretty sure this is the case on a 2004, certainly on later D3's, but the four prongs on the ignitor engage the housing so the spring clip is redundant. It just holds the bulb in place while the ignitor is disconnected.
