In my experience (from my Megane days), I found that moving the top of the spring to the right rather than trying to pull towards me released it very quickly. My first attempt took about 45 mins; I can now be confident of doing it in two.

It is quite psychological because you hear how hard it is and you kind of panic because your hand gets claustrophobia but once you crack it, it's quite striaght forward (you won't believe it until you've done it, though)

'Remove the power connection to the bulb, on the top right of the bulb, push the top of spring upwards and then slightly to the right, it will fall down, remove bulb, replace bulb, fold spring back up and push so that it locks again and, finally, replace connector!'
(If this seems familiar, it's a contribution I made to another forum that is copied in their FAQs section)
