Headlight swap

Hello all.
I have just became owner of a 2000 S500. This is my first Mercedes so please bear with me.if I get things mixed up as far as the language of parts used .
The previous owner swapped out the headlights with a 2001 S500 he swapped the entire asst.now on the 2000 the pass )right side won't ignite I can hear he ballast trying about every 10 seconds but no light with the exception of the occasional flash. Are these years light comparable or does something else need to be swapped/changed
Thank you in advance for your time and hep
