Go to your local part store and buy one there, you have to cut it off and rewire the new one on.

Thanks Pierre!

Merci beaucoup!

Everything worked as mentionned. Be carefull with the plastic in the winter. Make sure to use a flat screw driver and get it close to the slider and not on the edge. I cracked one of the tongues. Those L shaped slots are under the plastic cover with the two big plastic plugs that you also remove with the flat screw driver

SOURCE: REPLACE TAHOE DRL BULB SOCKET

You'll have to order the socket from the GM dealer. I've tried some common park/tail light sockets from Napa, etc. and none fit the lens housing. Part# for my 2004 GMC Sierra is 15306157. (Yours may be different, but probably not)
Remove the headlight lens (unclip & flip the two black steel rods towards you and pull them straight up & out). The lens should almost fall out if the bulb wires didn't hold it in!
There are only two wires, and since incandescent bulbs are not polarity-sensitive, they can go either way without mixing them up. Just cut & strip the old socket's wires, and strip & crimp the new socket on. ****-type crimp connectors were even included with the socket.

Actually there are two little black tabs on top of each headlight housing and you simply have to pull them up to release the whole headlamp.

Then follow the rest of emissionwiz's solution.

Change headlights in 2004 Chevy Malibu Classic
Open the hood and pull up on the two black tabs on either side of the lamp assembly. Pull the lamp assembly forward gently and unclip the wiring harness. Twist the socket counter-clockwise and remove it. The bulb should be removed by wiggling it.
Install new bulb in its place and turn the socket back into place. Reconnect the wiring harness and return the lamp to its original position. Line up the holes in the lamp assembly to the round ends of the mounting pins, and press down on the two black tabs to hook the lamp assembly into place.

How do i remove the head light on a 2008 chevy Malibu


Headlights grow dimmer by up to 20% over time and eventually burn out - for this reason, we recommend changing your headlights in pairs. Changing both headlight bulbs on your Malibu at the same time will allow both bulbs to have the same intensity and prevent the new headlight bulb from appearing brighter than the bulb on the opposite side. In some Chevrolets, the highbeam is the same bulb as the headlight and it is possible for the highbeam to work, but the headlight be burnt out even if they are the same bulb (and vise versa). Some Chevrolets have high intensity discharge headlights, sometimes referred to as xenon lights. These bulbs have a very high voltage that runs through them, even if the battery is disconnected. If your Malibu has this type of bulb, we do not recommend that you attempt to change it yourself.

When you change the headlight on your Malibu, it is important to not touch the glass part of the bulb with your fingers because the oil from your fingertips will cause that part of the bulb to burn hotter, which significantly shortens the life of the bulb.

Hope this helps! :)

2004 chevy malibu headlight harness


Find out the model of the light bulb you use and go to an auto parts store. Tell them you need a plug for bulb type xyz. Then just cut and splice the wires together, matching which wire goes where from the faulty plug. Should get the part for under $10.

How do I replace the headlight bulb in my chevy malibu?


Open the hood. There is an electrical connector going to the headlight bucket assembly. Turn the connector counterclockwise and pull gently. The bulb is attached to the connector. Pull the bulb out of the socket and replace with new bulb. Be careful not to handle new bulb with greasy fingers or hands if bulb gets soiled wipe down with alcohol. Halogen bulbs burn very hot oil from your skin will shorten the life of the headlight bulb

Left side turn signal's do not function on my 2005 chevy malibu bulbs are new can not find a fuse for the turnsignals


If only left sides are not working there may be another bulb bad some vehicles incorporate sidemarkers as turn signal as well.Would check right side first and see what lights are flashing for sure and compare to left side.If not a bulb would double check the sockets and wiring itself.It is not uncommon for a socket to go bad.
