United-States '03 Cooper S Xenon Light Problem

I have an '03 Cooper S with a passenger side headlight out. I replaced the Xenon lightbulb, but still not working. I checked fuses, they are fine. I swapped the ballast (silver square things hanging off headlight). I now believe it must be the ignitor which is what the bulb connects to. I have found one on ebay but can't figure out how to replace this piece of equipment.

Any help is greatly appreciated since an entire headlight assembly is over $500.
