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

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! :)

How too replace a headlight blub on a 2001 chevy malibu


You should be able to see the connector behind the headlight with the hood up. You will need to twist the connector about a quarter turn until it loosens. Take your old bulb out and when you replace it with the new bulb, be sure and not to touch the glass part of the bulb. This will severely decrease the bulbs life expectancy. Replace the connector and twist it until it locks into place. Good luck. Hope this helps.

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.....

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.

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.

How to replace headlight bulbs 1999 chevy malibu


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
