Its been fairly well documented how difficult the front bulbs in particular are to change (the current series of Fifth Gear, for example).
It does appear there is no genuine reason for this level of complication - other than a necessity to seek professional assistance.
Well done on undertaking what should be a routine bit of maintenance, however, it is worth bearing in mind that not all people are up to facing a 2 hour job, and having had to suffer the indignity of seeking help, calling them 'losers' (:loser: your smiley), is merely rubbing salt into a wound.
I would always advise any member who doesn't feel confident enough to tackle a job like this to shop around local auto electricians, who will be far less expensive.
You probably didn't intend any offence, all I'm doing is explaining how some may view your post.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
