ML320 Headlight Burnt out

I have a '99 ML320 with the front headlight burnt out, I tried replacing the light bulb but the light bulb was fine and to confirm I swapped it with the other side. Is there anything else I can check myself before taking it to the shop to troubleshoot for lots of $$$?

Try cleaning the socket the bulb goes into. Is there any evidence that moisture has entered the headlight assembly? I don't know ML-Class at all, but if there is one fuse for just that one headlight that's also a possibilty.

Take it to the shop an pay them $150/hr or spend $2.99 on light tester and do it yourself?
Tough dilemma.
