Not that hard. Which bulb? Sidelights presumably? If so they have a tab that can be pinched. Turn 90o and pull. The tab is missing on my front right makes it a little harder. Yours may be broken especially if a teenager from Halfords has touched it

The manual is actually reasonably accurate in its description.

When refitting the side light bulb, turn the lights on. That makes it easier to align by looking through the headlight glass.

I personally found this link pretty helpful when needed to do the job. (still, once I put H7s upside down and couldn't understand why the beam was on the sides of the road but not in front of the car )

They have a habit of dropping side light bulbs into the head amp unit!!
