Bmw z4 headlight problem / question

First time actually posting a question and sorry if this has already been asked, have yet to see it after hours of searching, but my 03 z4 3.0i xenon driver side headlight got moisture inside of it during the relatively harsh rains in California, after a few days the low beam went out, I got the new D2S bulb, didn't fix it, I switched over the igniter from passenger side, didn't fix it, so im thinking it's the obvious answer now, the wet wiring harness looking thing, anybody know what I can do to fix this/how to replace/where to get a new one?

Hate to be asking the obvious question, but have you checked the fuses?

I'll definitely check that today. Sorry if it was that obvious, I'm not knowledgeable about car wiring but I'm eager to learn

Ballast on the bottom of the headlight, swap with working side.

How do I take it out? I tried tugging and pulling it to the side but didn't want to break it.

I believe you have to remove the bumper, a 15 minute job, at most.
