The headlamp assembly on each side comes out as a unit. Raise the hood. Remove black plastic cover that hides the assembly. This is done by prying up on the plastic tabs on the cover that hold them in place. (They look like inserts) Once you pull up on the center portion of tab, the whole fastener comes out. Once the cover is out of the way, you will see these square black (about an inch Sq.) horizonal plates of which are connected to ball like fixtures (ball and socket) you pull up on the plates which release the ball to come out of the socket. The headlight assembly will swing out at the top, then raise straight up once it clears top. The headlight bulbs will now be accessible. Turn light bulb socket (with the wiring) counterclockwise 1/4 turn to remove. replace bulb. wipe clean with paper towel or cloth before reinstalling, as acid from skin or other contaminates will destroy bulbs. reinstall in reverse.

Why does my 1999 chevy malibu headlights turn on by them self in middle of night


You have a gremlin ! No , just kidding . No it's not the ignition switch ! The headlamps right an left have there own fuse in the under hood fuse box . LH HDLP - RH HDLP . Power direct to the head lamps an they ground through the headlamp switch when placed in high or low beams . Next time they come on wiggle the headlamp switch an see if they go out ! Does your vehicle have auto lights ? Day time running lamps ? The BCM - body control module controls Automatic lamp control !
Battery voltage is applied to the headlamp bulbs at all times. The headlamps are controlled by supplying the ground for the lamps through the turn/headlamp switch assembly or the body control module (BCM). When the turn/headlamp switch is in the ON position, the ground is supplied through CKT 150.
The BCM controls the daytime running lamps (DRL). The system allows the headlamps to operate at a reduced intensity under the following conditions:
?€¢
The engine is running.


?€¢
The transaxle is not in the PARK position.


?€¢
The normal headlamps are turned OFF.

The BCM activates the system by grounding CKT 592. This action energizes the DRL relay. This condition allows a reduced voltage to flow to the headlamps. When the headlamp switch is turned to ON, the headlamps operate normally.
The parking brake provides an input to the BCM. When the parking brake is engaged, the DRL remain disabled until the parking brake is disengaged.

How do I change a head light on a 1999 lumina


If you just need to change the headlamp bulb, your owners manual has that info. If you don't have an owners manual go to my.gm.com

Type in year--make--model, hit go, click on owners manual/guide, click on pdf file.

If you want to remove headlamp assembly, let me know and I'll post the procedure. I wasn't sure if you just needed to remove bulb or the whole lamp assembly? Don't touch the new bulb with bare hands/fingers, use gloves.

Change headlamp bulb 2000 chevy malibu


The headlight is a Halogen that comes out the back.
Find the wire harness and follow it to the back of the light to a rubber cover. Pull the rubber cover off the back and find a holder. Unscrew or releade the wire "spring" then pull out the old bulb.
BR SURE NOT to touch the glass part of the new bulb.....

if one of the pulleys(power steering is not uncommon) have been removed it is possible it was not pressed back on to the pump shaft far enough. this will cause the wear you explained
