Bears, bulbs, battlestarGalactica

Swap with the passenger one, known to be good,

If that fails, work backwards up the wiring harness with a voltmeter to find the fault

Not sure if this is your problem, but I was having problems with intermittent low beam. I could wiggle the socket and the low beam would come on, but it would eventually go out again. So I replaced the socket with a ceramic version about a month ago. No problems so far.
