I have an 02 Acura RL my passengers side low beam has blown. When I removed the bulb the glass was broken inside the housing. I purchased a new hid bulb & its not working either.

I'd suspect water is/was in the headlight housing. When cold water hits the hot bulb it will burst. With HID (High Intensity Discharge) headlights there's a ballast that fires the bulb. It may be burned out. Have this possibility diagnosed before replacing it. These ballasts aren't cheap! HTH. -Jim
