Weird Headlight Problem

My right low beam idiot light keeps coming on.

Whenever I pop the hood I find the grey bulb assembly has fallen out of its hole so if the light is on its on inside my hood and not in the headlight istself.

The other day I found the bulb completely broken like it got rattled around and shattered.

I replaced the bulb and it doesn't seem to be working at all... plus it still wont "lock" in like the other side.

Any one else have this problem? Suggestions?

Thanks

Can the grey housing that holds the bulb be replaced?

I am thinking that whatever locking mechanism is used to hold the bulb and the housing into lens has broken somehow and thats why it is falling out of place.
