The question is, do Renault techs actually remove everything the book says or squeeze their hands into tight spaces like the rest of us which makes it under 10 minutes and a struggle ?

Washer bottle side isn't too bad for access. Battery side is tight. Both are do-able without moving anything but it does help if you have small hands. I haven't
Taking the battery out does give easier access.
At least on my Scenic the bulbs are in a twist and turn bayonet fitting instead of the fiddly spring holder thingies n other cars.
Halfords charged me about £12 supplied and fitted took them about 25 mins that's for an 07 Clio though.
