Thanks for the information from Leroy that got me started on dealing with replacing the bulb in my wife's Megane. Unfortunately I too had the 'bolt keeps turning' problem reported by Mikeqb49 above. After struggling with it for a couple of hours and getting a bruised wrist and a headache, here is my solution:
1) STOP struggling
2) go and get a coffee
3) while you are drinking your coffee, come to terms with the fact that as a result of bad design the bolt has seized onto the the metal theads that used to be bonded into the fog light body
4) order yourself a new fog light unit (currently available for about £33 on eBay (incl. postage)
5) when it arrives cut/grind the head off the bolt
6) spend 5 stress free minutes removing the old unit and inserting the new unit
7) thank me for saving you from shortening your lifespan by suffering the same level of UTTER FRUSTRATION AND ANNOYANCE THAT I HAVE JUST SUFFERED!!!!
