Default A8 right low beam headlight problem

I just bought a replacement D2S halogen and (with rubber gloves), removed and replaced the bulb.

It did not work. I then tried removing the left headlight lowbeam (with car running) and the bulb burst as I was disconnecting it.

Suggestion: Don't try removing halogen bulbs while car is running.

With the left lowbeam blown , I shut the car off and took the right halogen and put it in the left side and it worked.

I then checked the fuse box as there are seperate fuses for left lowbeam and right lowbeam. Both fuses are not blown.

Which leads me to think that a wiring problem exists in the right headlight assemblt or wiring.

Has anyone had this problem and how was it resolved?

I did have an instance when the light was not working and took it to my mechanic and it was working when I got there.

How do I troubleshoot the problem from here.

Thanks in advance if anyone has any suggestions.
