Wondering if anyone has had the same issue... I thought my low beam bulb was just out (passenger side) but when I went to replace it the replacement didn’t work. Then I noticed that when some sideways pressure is applied by hand to the part that holds the bulb, when twisted into the hole it screws into and properly seated, the bulb comes on. When pressure is released it’s off again. So it doesn’t work in normal operation.

Seems like some type of connectors aren’t making contact. I can take it into the dealership but I’m super busy so was thinking maybe someone knew a quick fix/way to correct this?

Check the terminals in the connector, sometimes they will get squashed and not make good contact. A small flat blade screwdriver can help "reset" them so they have more grabbing power. If that doesn't work I'd make the dealer replace the connector.
