Bump the headlight with your hand, if it shuts off or flickers it could be the tab that holds the bulb in place. My passenger light does this when I am on a rough road. I took everything apart and the tab that holds the bulb in place is broken and it cuts out when it bounces around. Luckily, I don't drive my car at night, so it's something I have been putting off. If this is your problem, I think the whole bulb has to be replaced? and if you change one, you may as well change both so you don't color difference between the two bulbs. Or you can just figure a way to hold the bulb in place so it doesn't cut out when it bounces around.
