You need to cut the base of the bulb to that same shape for it to fit.Btw use a dremal, it helps.

No if u look at the bulb , its like a hat shape, just trim both of the top edges off. No need to do anything to the ballast. Btw no step by step. 1) make the hole on the headlight bigger and 2) trime both of the sides of the bulbs.
