I suppose it must depend on the under-bonnet layout but in diagnosing my ballast problem ('01 1.9dci),I was able to remove and swap over the HID bulbs easily enough. Certainly a bit tight for space and I guess if you have hands like spades it could be more difficult. You need to pull out the washer bottle filler neck (just twist and pull) and tuck some of the looms up out of the way but other than that a squeeze but possible.
Hi Phonebox - I had a 2001 1.9dci couple of years ago and couldn't get my hands down behind the n/s lamp to change a std bulb on that and my hands aren't that big - just seems that no manufacturer these days takes into account maintainability within their designs. BUT are quite happy to 'fleece' you to do the job for you!! I'll check this Laguna out and see if there is any more on this one - no reason why there should be I guess!!
Thanks for response by the way.
