Question about 2007 Mazda RX-8 Touring Sedan
I had the same issue and I noticed that the bulb itself was not screwed in properly. The bulb has 3 small plastic guides that fit in 3 holes in the lamp socket, after which you are supposed to give it a small twist and the plastic guides go under the metal part in the lamp socket; in my case one of the plastic guides was left outside so the bulb was not straight in the socket. Take the bulb out and install it properly, I took the whole lamp out but this is not really necessary.

1. Unplug the three-prong electrical connector.
2. Pull off rubber boot on back of headlamp
3. A spring clip holds the bulb in the assembly. Un-hook one side and swing the clip back.
4. Slide the old bulb straight out.
5.Wearing disposable gloves so that skin oil doesn't get on the new bulb, open the new bulb's package and insert the new bulb straight into the holder, making sure it goes all the way to the front. The middle electrical prong should be up.
6. Swing the retaining spring back and re-clip.
7. Slide the rubber boot back on the rear of the assembly, making sure that the electrical prongs are exposed.
8. Re-connect the three-prong electrical connector.
