Headlight doesn't work

Hi guys, recently I posted topic about problem I had on my g35;
Well there is another issue now. Passenger headlight doesn't work, so I got a bulb, replaced and boom still doesn't work. I went to purchasing ballast and at some point before I didn't get ballast it start works again and again stop. I still didn't replace ballast because I were waiting for my friend to help me out but I m gonna probably do that by myself bc I wanna save some money. Mechanic asking for 120 only labor (LoL).
My question is, what I should test before I did change ballast because it could be maybe wire problem and should I remove bumper to do change or only that plastic under the headlight and then I 'll be able to replace it.

Thanks guys,

Sounds like a ballast problem. U will have to remove the headlight in order to change the ballast.

Swap the ballast and lamp that are working to the side that's not working. Then you can verify it's a wiring/electrical problem

Same thing is occurring to me with my driver side headlight. Replaced the headlight, bulb, ballast & even tested the ballast on the passenger side and it worked. Thinking itís a short to ground.
