How do I Replace a Malibu 2005 Headlight?

If you are having problems with your 2005 Malibu headlight not working, you can fix it yourself with a little help. Replacing the headlight bulb in the early models was somewhat difficult. This is not the case with the late models such as the 2005 Malibu. The headlight assembly is made of a durable plastic, but this can be damaged, so take care when you are working with your headlight assembly. Sometimes, when you replace the headlight bulb, the other old bulb in the assembly may be dimmer than the new one. In this case, replace both bulbs while you have already got it apart.
