Hello. New member. I am having an impossible time replacing my passenger side headlight bulb. Before you give me the rundown on how to do it, I already know. I've replaced my drivers side. Yes, it was a pain because it was cramped and the springs were hard to get loose, but I did it. My hand/arm literally doesn't have room to work on the passenger side. There is significantly more clutter in the way. It is so frustrating to know you could get a job done in 5 minutes if you just had the space to do it. I'm starting to think maybe I should take apart some of the stuff that's in the way but I'm concerned I might take apart something significant or that I can't get back in place. Has anyone else had issues like this and found a way to improvise?

ALL of life has issues like that, nothing gets put out on the table to be able to do things easy. You can give up now and lie down and die or do what the rest of us do (after being forced to just like you), use that brain to get things done. Frustration doesn't lie around in puddles waiting to be stepped into, it is actively created on the fly by brains.

You're getting there albeit slowly. Take things apart if hands are too big. If afraid you'll break something then PAY to get it done. Remove the entire light assembly if you must, many cars do that now.

Not trying to be mean at all but grousing about it only makes you more miserable, better to work that brain to go to new places. Anything you touch has personal significance to you or you wouldn't be messing with it, so dive in, holding back is the greatest cost to yourself you will ever impose. Yes, you will likely break a few things but there is a cost for learning, but using that brain minimizes it so much pretty soon you won't worry because you won't be breaking things.

Work the brain way before you work the hands..........do it enough and most of your breakage issues become mental, you stopped them way before they ever became physical in nature. The guy you pay to do it will be no smarter than you and frankly quite likely will be dumber. And he certainly won't care about your car as much as you do.

Its a pain in the rear, but it can be done.
