You may have to remove the front bumper and headlights to change the bulb depending on the size of your hands/patience.
I now know what you mean. There is an awful lot of stuff written up about this which I managed to completely miss! Maybe ignorance is bliss?

Personally I didn't think it was that bad a job to do. I struggled more recently changing an headlight bulb in a citroen c4. You really do need to have very small hands or that or better yet take the damn headlight out! But on the Megane with the wheel off I found it quite a straight forward job to do. Shame I didn't know about the problems some people had as I could have done a photo sequence.
