Having to change the nearside headlamp bulb having had problems in the past limited space. I got an old cork pushed the terminal ends on to the cork you may have to make slots first depending on the type of cork I used a nail file then marker pen to indicate the notch side up I made the slots using the old bulb not the new one. Then fitting was easy took just a few minutes. Incidentally the mirror one of my favourite tools only £1 at poundland is handy to see everything as gone into place. I hope this tip is useful to save time and swearing.
