I own a 2002 Passat. I have had my car to the dealer three times in the previous two years to replace the drivers side headlamp. Three headlamps in two years. Seems odd. dealer states "could just be the mechanic touching the bulb when installing". ???

Anyone with the same situation.

a valid question

Why should he do it by himself if car is/was still under warranty? My dealer replaced 2 sets of bulbs (once the right one went, left soon followed) and then eventually checked things properly and determined that headlight harness was faulty. Water somehow got in there (probably rain or carwash) and did enough damage.
Check your headlights and see if there's any damage - wiring, cracked plastic, etc.
