Clio - Headlight Spring

I have been helped in the recent past with my newly aquired 03 Clio II and am very grateful.
Now I want someone to assure me I have not entered some Madhouse named Renault!!.
1. While changing a Headlamp bulb (main beam on Drivers side), I was struggling, when the wee spring which holds the bulb in place fell off and went into the housing. No amount of fishing could retrieve it. So I go to Renault to buy a replacement clip. NO WAY JOSE!!. According to them I have to buy a whole new headlamp unit - around £70. They don't carry spare clips!!!.
2. Adding insult to injury it seems in order to replace the Lamp Unit means the Bumper and Grille have to come off.

Please someone tell me this a nightmare I'm in and how I can wake up.

Currently in Braehead11's garage:
Clio II
