I alway found the bulbs were easiest to change if you pull the dash pad. Also a good time to change others if they are old.

On a malibu dash darn near impossible to get at them from underneath.
On the bank of idiot lights below the speedo there are 2 blank positions on on each side. Press gently on the outboard side of each blank plug they should pop open revealing a screw next remove screws along top edge (they screw into the dash pad) now reach up behind steering column and un clip the speedo cable.
now you can pull that whole cluster out and relamp
