I had a banging sound system in my IS350, and it caused my front left HID to start randomly going out. I have since removed the sound system, but that bulb stills craps out randomly. Could the bulb somehow loosen?, or do you think its damaged and I should buy a new one. Also, is it hard to get into where the bulb is.

Are the HIDs stock or aftermarket?

try swapping out the left and right ballasts.... keep the bulbs in the same place...

see if the problem can be reproduced after the swap

I suspect the ballast is going bad on you...
