    Yes, there are two tubes in the housing. One lights up the left side and the other lights the right side. The ballast is located on that rectangular area you see at the bottom of the housing. I just completely cleared the housing seeing as how I was never going to use that stuff again.

Gonna assemble it back into the car here within the hour
    Haha. Life is better when you laugh at yourself. When I had to replace mine, I took the snow brush, pushing the brake pedal down with it, and them moved the seat forward enough to where it held the pedal down while I walked around back
