2005 Chevrolet Malibu • 167,000 miles

I have a 2005 Malibu Maxx. The centre high mount light (brake light) is burnt out.

The part is: GM Performance 22717854 LAMP ASM-HIGH MT STOP

It's an LED light, and from what I can tell, I can't just replace the bulb, but have to replace the entire light fixture.

Is there a way it could be something else? (Fuse, etc?). I think it's the light as I was told before that 1/2 were not working and now they're all burnt out.

The other question is can I change this for the other type of light fixture that is non-LED (available in some Maxx's). The cost of the LED unit is $85+ where I live, and only seems to be available at the dealership.

Any help would be gladly welcomed.

It has to be replaced as a unit. Go to gm parts direct. Com you'll probalby find it cheaper there and they will send to your home. Just go to catalog and type in vin.
