Hi there: You are right, the nearside dipped headlight has VERY little room and the instructions in the manual are misleading (image HERE)
The image is of the offside headlight where there's enough room to get a camera behind: having studied the image, it's easy to see what to do. The nearside headlight is the same.
1. Push one of the two clips inwards towards the bulb. 2. Once it is pushed far enough in to clear the lip on the mounting, push it sideways, away from the bulb.
Repeat for the other clip. The whole spring clip unit is now released and the bulb can be removed.
In the image, I've drawn a diagram of the bracket (red) with a cross section through the spring in blue - it shows how you push the spring down then outwards.
When refitting, it might be an idea to wear a glove because there is so little room that you will almost certainly touch the glass of the bulb inadvertantly. The locating lug on the bulb goes at the top: the 12-o-clock position.
To refit the clips, push each one inwards and then sideways over the lip.
Remember to reconnect the two-pin socket onto the bulb - I forgot and wondered why the headlight didn't work!
One other thing: a Halfords "477" bulb is an H7 bulb by another name. I knew I had some 477 bulbs from my old Pug 306, but it wasn't until I removed the old bulb that I realised that it was the same - saved me having to make a special journey to buy an H7 bulb.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.
Seems to me you have a short to ground what you can do is unplug the fuel pump connector then replace the fuse to see if it still blows if it does not then you need to replace the fuel pump and sender if it does blow then you will need to trce the wire back to the fuse panel to see where it is shorted ....
ask a local mechanic to install for you providing that this high intensity bulb is allowed to be fitted in your country as here in spain they are not allowed unless the headlight has a special code in the number which is the certificate of homoglonation .Well this is spain and they do love the old paperwork ,dont the bulbs fit in from the back with a clip ?¿? most do but some vehicles you need to remove the headlight to fit a new bulb
This should be a simple fix ...look under the bumper and see if you can remove the socket.It should twist right out.You may have to remove a protective cover under the vehicle to access the fog lamp assembly. After you twist the socket out you can replace the bulb...see link for all bulbs for your vehicle. According to the list the bulb is a 9145...http://www.sylvania.com/ConsumerProducts/AutomotiveLighting/LampReplacementGuide/AutoLRG-Results.htm
