Laguna II side light

The N/S side light on my Laguna II's just blown. Not a problem thinks me, replacing bulbs on cars is in the same league as checking your tyre pressures - a complete no brainer. Or maybe not.

As far as I can tell, in order to replace the side light you need to disconnect a couple of wiring multi-plugs and remove the battery, just to get at the plastic cover. Then once the this is removed, you need to dislocate your wrist and grow another few finger joints to actually remove the faulty bulb.

I spied this thread, although it doesn't actually give a recommended method on how you replace the bulb (other than say it's a flippin' nightmare!).

Is there a knack to this that I'm missing?

If it's any relevance, the car's fitted with Xenon bulbs (although it's the side light I'm trying to replace).
