Default Headlight short?

I have a 2002 wrx wagon.

When I turn on my headlights my driver side won't come on. If I pop the hood and wiggle the bulb it will turn on. I have done this for a week or so now. Sometimes it'll turn on and sometimes I'll have to pop the hood.
Last night it wouldn't turn on, even wiggling it wouldn't light up.
I don know anything about elec or lighting. What could I test or replace to fix the problem?

The trouble you are having is due to a bad connection, not a short. The trouble is most likely with the connections in the socket for the bulb. You may need to replace the socket as the contacts for the pins become damaged after time.
