    Haha. Is joke yes?

    or is it a light to signal that you have a passenger? An SRX taxi, if you will.

    No I have a burnt out right side front bulb, I have never had or remember anyone having a right side bulb fail, always the left.

    Its funny it usually is the left now that i think about it. I've done my left 3 times and right once. All of that was in the first 7 months. I used some dielectric grease and haven't had the issue in over a year.

    Look up why UPS or Fed/ex do not turn left, that's why the left burns out so much.

    In 2004 the left headlight socket burnt and failed on my 03 Envoy. The right socket was starting to turn brown. I put dielectric grease on all headlight sockets. None have failed, including the one that was starting to brown. In fact anytime I have something unconnected I apply some grease before reconnecting.

    I have had a couple fails on each side in 50,000 miles or so. Drives me nuts and easy to see why somebody who has to pay for these at a shop will be looking for a different brand on their next purchase.

    Yup replaced both driver and passenger on mine. Top tip: make sure you put in a LL version of the bulb or you will be doing it again far too soon.

    I've only had to change the passenger bulb once at 75K.
