Just changed mine yesterday. If you have the wiring harness out, all you need to do is unplug from harness. The bulb has three prongs. On mine the harness was actually fried and the plastic melted around the prongs. I had to pull and wiggle the bulb to disconnect. bought a new harness for $4 dollars and hooked up.
To get to the bulb you have to get to it from behind the headlight and may either have to remove the air filter cover or alarm horn to get to it. After pushing back the rubber boot, The bulb is clamped in with a spring clamp and you need to push the clamp togeather to disengage the bulb and harness.

Could be a fuse ...or it is possible the bulbs are gone.or the wiring loom has been damaged.first place to check is the fusebox.then swap the working bulb into non working side to rule out any wiring faults.if new bulbs keep blowing then it points to a short in wiring or faulty switch which can cause power surges.get back to me if you have a sunroof and water seepage around the courtesy light as clios get this known problem which could be related.

Cobalt 2005 ls headlight bulb replacement


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • 9007 LL halogen headlight bulb
  • Wrench
  • Gloves or clean rag
  1. Step 1 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.
  2. Step 2 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.
  3. Step 3 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.
  4. Step 4 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.
  5. Step 5 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.
  6. Step 6 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.
  7. Step 7 Disconnect the bulb socket by turning it counterclockwise. Remove the old bulb from the socket by firmly, but gently pulling it straight out.
  8. Step 8 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

How to replace low beam bulb on 2004 baja


I was able to locate an owners manual for the vehicle. The large plastic weatherguard protecting the headlight bulb connections needs to be rotated CCW about 90 degrees, and removed to provide access to the bulbs. Then remove the center connection for the low beam and release the spring clip retainer to release the low beam bulb. Replace with new bulb and reconnect/reinstall retainer clip, center connector wire, and weatherguard. Note that this is the procedure for the Turbo Baja...non-Turbo model is different.
