Tried to read through posts to determine problem. I will switch parts from side to side however wanted to throw this out. The drivers headlight flickers when lights are on. I took assembly off, reassembled same thing. Turned brights on and the brights turn on and off on same side. Does this sound like a buld, balast or ignitor issue?

When your bulb goes bad, it begins to flicker. Mine began to flicker when it went bad, and it cost me around $200.00 at the dealer, years ago. I think the average life of the HID bulbs were around 1800 hours..? One of mine went out about the average time, but the other has more than 4,000 hours and still doing fine.. I always drive with my lights on day or night.

It's a little tricky to change the HID bulbs, and it is easier if you remove the whole headlight from the vehicle and work on it.. There are several posts with a lot of info.. I think the OEM HID bulbs are OSRAM..?
