I hope you finally found out how to change you headlight bulb and avoided a ticket! If not, let me know. I've got a 2005 LS (new body style. Not the newest 2008 body style) and had the same dilema before reading my owner's manual. If you need help, reply to message.

If the owner's manual helps on the regular Malibu in replacing the headlamp, it doesn't on the Malibu Classic. When the two bolts are removed that supposedly allow the headlamp assembly to be pulled out, the headlamp is still connected to that part by the headlamp adustment mechanism and that part is connected to the grill and bumper. Has anyone resolved this issue?

Easy as pie. There are two small, square, black clips that hold the assembly. One on each side at the top. Simply pull up on them until they pop loose and the assembly comes right out. Good luck : )
