I've never done it myself as I have never owned an Eclipse before. Here is an I ran across of someone else performing an upgrade.

If everything looks ok and there are no burn marks on the wiring it is probably the ballast.

I doubt it would be too difficult, as long as you can get to the guts without destroying the hood.
