Front headlight bulb change in Clio II, phase 2

Last week I decided to change the front headlight bulbs, with better ones (Philips X-Treme Power, H7 for dipped beam and Philips Vision Plus, H1 for high beam), so I took a look in the handbook and Haynes manual and it seemed fairly easy. When I took a look myself under bonnet though, I just couldn't reach the dipped one lamp in the right side of the car (passenger's side, mine is a left-hand drive). After reading this finding I was completely dissapointed (once again, with the way frenchmen think of practicality !!).
So, anyone out there who has tried himself (or should I go to a dealer ) ?
