2009 NISSAN ALTIMA MY HEADLIGHT IS GOING OUT

I bought the car and the previous owner had been hit on the right side. They got it fixed in all before I got the car. But when I got the car the right headlight was out. So I got it replaced by a HID bulb. The bulb has lasted me 3 months and is now flickering for second and then going. This bulb is on the right side like the previous light and I'm wondering since it got hit could there be some bad wiring and do I need to take it to the dealership?

If it is flickering, it sounds like a loose wire. Have you checked for that?

Where could I check for a loose wire? To work on my lights I have to take my entire bumper off

Can you access the wiring to the light itself? That connection is where I would start.
