Question about 2007 Chevrolet Chevrolet Malibu LS
I have a 2007 malibu that had a side impact and after replacing the curtain airbags and resetting the computer I am still getting an impact sensor warning. I am wondering if there is any other impact sensors that might have been set off besides the one near the hood latch?

SOURCE: hood latch
Yup mine did the same thing it needs to be oiled use a spray oil and also if it is cold were you are the hood latch cable can stick open so spray the cable inside at the latch Lockdicer will help for cold days. If your latch is hard to pull <latch handle> don't force it. It will break so if the car will start warm the car up first this will melt the ice. The sceeching is the powersteering pump check the fluid if low if it is not low then it is your pump not to hard to replace. Hope this helps

We have the same problem with our malibu. What I found is that the hood release handle inside the car gets stuck on the housing around the driver's side feet. Check if your handle is getting stuck there too because I thought for the longest time that the cable was the problem.

The passenger side airbag is a lot easier then driver side. Take the glove box out and you will see two 10mm bolts holding it in place. When you open the passenger side front door, remove the panel on the side of the dash and you will see yellow connectors.The 1 closest to the front is attached to the air bag, it is clipped into the frame. Just pull it loose and take it out and your done. For the Driver side, it takes a skinny T27 to remove the two star bolts, then just disconnect the horn red clip and ground and install new airbag. The module is located under the passenger seat, underneath the carpet. Kinda stupid but thats where its at. You also need to replace the front impact sensor located behind the grille on the back side of the metal bar to each side. Follow the hood latch down. Also just to make sure, you know to disconnect the battery before you do all this. You don't want new airbags to accidentally deploy.

SOURCE: Oxygen sensor replacement
It's something you can with simple tools, you have four O2 sensors. Your going to have to get the truck rescanned or if you have the DTC code, you can find out which O2 sensor has gone bad so you can replace it. Your going to have Two upstream O2 sensors on each exhaust bank, one O2 sensor before the Catalytic Converter, and the last one after the Catalytic Converter. Its like replacing a Spark plug and you can pick up the O2 sensor at any large Auto Parts store with a can of WD 40. Just unclip the wire leads to the O2 sensor and then with a O2 sensor socket or hint close end wrench and hammer, you can remove the O2 sensor from the exhaust pipe. Good luck and be safe.
