What is the easiest way to change the drivers side headlight bulb on a 1998 Malibu

Well if it is like my '01 there should be two black tabs. They pop up and you can pull the whole headlight assembly out.

And if they're like my '99 Malibu, the tabs are white. Pull up sharply, and the whole headlight assy comes out. When re-installing, make sure the tabs snap into place.

Thanks guys.I borrowed a Haynes manual from the libary. You have to remove the clips that hold the plastoc cover over top of the headlight. Then as you stated, pull up on the two tabs and slide out the headlight assembly.
