Yes this is a very stressfull job but possible without taking the car to bits. A small hand would be beneficial too! Passenger side is the easiest as all you have to do is remove the washer bottle filler neck and a peice of plastic trim. You should then be able to accsess the light unit without too much of a problem, getting the side light out is just a quater turn and a wiggle and it will pop out. The drivers side is a bit more tricky. I managed to replace mine (did the passenger side first so I knew what to do) without taking anything off. Cut up my hand a bit but was possible. You can gain access to the the back of the unit by removing the battery cover and slipping your hand between the battery and headlight and moving a few wires out of the way, also there is the fabric pipe for the air intake there, this should push back just enough to get the cap off the head light unit. I suppose the easiest way to do this is remove the battery. Just remember your radio codes!!! It is a bit of a stupid design, (another way of bumbping up servicing costs) but if you don't mind a little cut on your hand you should be able to do it without taking anything appart.
