Is that space the only place available to mount the ballasts, and do I just have to suck it up and take apart the front-end in order to remove that plastic piece?

My kit has the slim ballasts, so they're a good bit smaller than the ballasts that the video was using.

Or is that plastic piece super easy to remove and maybe I'm just overthinking it?
