SOURCE: low beam headlight on Pilot 2004
I lookd for the Technical Service Bulletin on headlights that you referred to in our Live Chat. It is Service Bulletin 07-027 dated May 12, 2007. A downloadable copy is avaibale here. It contains procedures, photos and images on how to address the issue. However, may I point out that said TSB refers to both left & right low beams and not only the right.
Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Took the dimmer switch out to check for problems. Quite easy to do, but as soon as I pulled the block connector out of the dimmer switch, I could see a small burn mark on the block connector!! And…the male pins that connect into the block connector were slightly corroded and had some burnt plastic between the pins.
Cleaning and scraping corrosion off of pins and connector solved the problem.
If you are having some low beam light issues, and are uncomfortable with these repairs, let your mechanic know to examine the block connector-to-dimmer switch connections for corrosion if all fuses and relays check out.
Unfortunately, the switch may not be the problem but the connection sure was! It pays to noodle around sometimes.
This also may be the root cause of excessive bulb failures. Our CR-V did not start blowing bulbs till this year, after 4 years of ownership. The dimmer switch is a low current switch that really just turns on the relays for the headlights. Increased resistance in the block connector and pins may have been the root cause all along.

without a wiring diagram, at first guess, a fuse or relay. which you can locate in the owners manual. or it could be the switch.
