It's a bulb replacement. If it's anything similar to my Audi, there is a cover on the back of the headlight housing that you pop off. Then you can reach in, pull the wire connector off the bulb, and unclip a metal retainer over the bulb, and pull the bulb out. Installation of the new one is the reverse. Just be SURE not to touch the glass part of the bulb. Skin oils can cause a halogen bulb to burn very hot and burn out very quickly. If you do touch the glass, wipe it gently but thoroughly on a cotton cloth to clean it off before you install it.

My niece has a jimmy, they should be the same. The inside should be the high beam, the outside the low, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS ON NEW BULBS! Oil will cook on them and pop them! Both come off the same way. Take off the big rubber thing. They are soft but over hard plastic. Just pull them off. If you have trouble, you can flip the little wire clips that hold the headlight housing in place, this will give you room to see the rubber caps enough to figure them out better. The bulb assembly rotates CCW counter clockwise, and should slip out easily. Take the wires and plug off. it should be obvious how it pulls off. Snap the new bulb into the wires without touching the glass part. Gently replace in backwards order as you removed it. Put the rubber caps on, they keep water off the bulbs. It will break them!
The passenger side was harder for me. I had to take the air cleaner off, the whole cover and filter.You should be able to see or feel the same type caps, The low beam outside, High beam inside. The same 2 wire clips are there to release the housing. Everything pretty much goes the same, other than the air cleaner has to be removed and replaced. And make sure the rubber cap is replaced! Good Luck and good motoring!

This is caused by a dirty/corroded headlight ground to the sheet metal of the car, the ground is usually near the headlight

Check the fuse. There are seperate fuses for right and left. You dont mention if the high beam works for that side? If it does, the fuse is good. The GREEN wire at the bulb is the ground for the low beam. If that wire has power, then the ground is bad. If the high beam works, the hi'lo beam switch is good, and there is a problem between that headlight and the Engine Compartment Junction Block

Power for the headlights on the Left side (High and low beam.) comes from the same fuse... The ORANGE wire and the ORANGE/BLACK are the same, they connect in the harness. If you only lack the 12v to make the light work connect them at the headlight assembly.
If your low beam also lacks ground the Left low beam ground is shared with the right low beam ground... Run a wire from left low beam DARK BLUE to right low beam DARK BLUE/WHITE.
If its not working now then your cursed, seek a witch doctor.
