Set the parking brake and remove the keys from the ignition to ensure your Chevy Cobalt won't roll while you're replacing the headlight bulb.
Open the hood by pulling the hood release latch located under the instrument panel on the driver's side of the car. Locate the secondary release latch on the front of the hood at the center, slightly towards the driver's side. Slide the latch to the left to release the hood and raise it.
Locate the headlight assembly and remove the bolts by turning them counterclockwise. Set the bolts aside in a safe place, so you won't misplace them.
Remove the plastic fasteners from the headlight assembly molding. Carefully pull back the front fascia, or molding. You may need an extra pair of hands to perform this slightly awkward task.
Grab the headlight assembly and pull it towards the radiator at a slight angle to remove it. This should provide easier access to the headlight bulb and wiring harness.
Lift the plastic locking tab on the wiring harness to disconnect the bulb base. Then, disconnect the wiring harness from the bulb socket and remove the black retainer by turning it counterclockwise.
Disconnect the bulb socket by turning it counterclockwise. Remove the old bulb from the socket by firmly, but gently pulling it straight out.
Replace the old bulb with a new 9007 LL halogen headlight bulb. Put your headlight assembly back together by reversing the steps when you disassembled it. Use 89 inch-lb torque when retightening the headlight assembly
Locate and remove the power
steering reservoir from behind the driver's side headlight assembly.
Pull straight upward, sliding it off its mount and set aside for access
to the headlight bulb. Make sure you keep it upright so it does not
Locate and remove the electrical connector from the back of the bulb. Depress the locking tab to release it and pull the connector down, removing it from the bulb.

the electrical connector by plugging it into the bottom of the bulb.
Push the connector in until the locking tab engages the bulb, securing
it to the bulb.
Slide the power steering pump reservoir onto its mount.
A torque bit screw driver are a philips screw driver should be all you need. JUST MAKE SURE NOT THE TOUCH THE BULB (new bulb) WITH YOUR FINGERS. Your body oil will make the bulb burn out quick!!!! Wear rubber gloves when installing the new bulb. f one is dim, you better change both sides. are the other side will also be dim.
The easiest way to do it is to pull the headlight out of the car. This isn't hard, but you'll have to have a T30 Torx bit to do it. There are three bolts that secure the headlight. Two are on top of the headlight - you'll see them right up there on top when you open the hood.
The third is harder to find. Look where the outer upper corner of the headlight meets the top of the fender, above the corner indicator. There is a lip on the fender that runs all the way back to the base of the windshield, where the edge of the hood sits when it's closed. There is a round hole in that lip near the headlight (just behind it). Shine a light down in there and you'll see the third Torx bolt. Take that out and you can slide the headlight assembly forward. You shouldnt' have to take it fully out of the car, just take the bolts out and move it forward.
Then remove the dust cap on the back of the headlight, pop the connector off the bulb, undo the spring clip holding the bulb, and remove it. Install the new bulb (wipe down the glass portion with your t-shirt to get any skin oils off it, as they'll burn it up quickly), and then reassemble in the reverse order.
