Like Jimmy said, that's just your turn signal/corner light. Your headlight is likely fine. There was a slightly newer revision of the turn signal that has a stronger tab for connecting to the headlight. Instead of a forked tab that only requires you to loosen the screw, the new one has a hole, and you have to take the screw completely out. I noticed the same thing that you did about used ones all having rotted gaskets. They just don't last. You might consider getting a new aftermarket one. There are a couple of companies still making them, just not Valeo.
