The problem you are mostly having is that you are using a Haynes manual. Get a Chilton, better pictures, and better discriptions. Haynes generalizes way to much for my comfort level. you can usually get one to copy sections from at the library. Also special not most oil change places will do this for you, much more easily than you can. On my car I had to remove the enire air intake box from the car. I have played around with cars my whole life and a job that use to take 10-30 minutes took me a litle over 2 hours. Plus the litle clip that holds your new style balbs in. Study it very carefully even taking pictures of it before you remove it. I thaught I would kill the first person that talked to me while trying to figure that one out.

2002 Chevy Malibu. Left side brake lights not working. Brake lights come on when car is started, so I know that (new) bulbs are fine. Any ideas? Right side lights are fine.

the socket (or board) that the bulbs are on are known to go bad. its actually a common repair. the lights coming on when vehicle is running is just a parking light not the brake light. you either installed the wrong bulb(needs to be a double filament) or the board is no good. Good luck

The headlight is a Halogen that comes out the back.

You shouldn't need to remove the engine support. I recommend you get a Haynes repair manual for your vehicle from Auto Zone or the local Auto Parts store. If you do have to remove the support it should be a simple procedure.

2000 chevy malibu headlight replacement

To remove the headlight assy, there are two black tabs above the housing that you pull up about an inch and that will release the assy, so you can pull it out and access the bulbs. The bulbs will twist out of the housing. Be sure not to touch the new bulb with your skin. The oil on your fingers will shorten the life of the bulb.
