Default L. Headlight low beam not working

I tested the bulb, seems ok,

Tested the wire, the ground seems ok, the positive connection seems interrupted on the Left headlight.

All other lights, and electric stuff on the car seem to work fine.

I found a wiring diagram, but don't really understand it.
Since it seems that the left low beam bulb is connected to the L city lights, and blinkers, it seems that the fuse is still ok.

But I can't be sure because I see bare wires running across the battery, as if someone had been messing with them... (prev owner); although the wires he connected where towards the FAN, to keep it always on, not the lights...

I could run a lead from the Right headlight to the left, underneath the bumper; or just tap a line off the fan.
any other (more professional) solutions (eg: renew or check the wire to the right fuse, whichever it could be)?

wiring diagram (sorry for the bad tile, click on it to zoom):

Tested good or not, replace the bulb. If it doesn't work, you have a spare.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

I have a spare, and tested the bulb.
It's the cable (the + is interrupted).
