    Yeah, agree that fitting nuts onto bolts in engine bays can be a problem. I've not run one off yet to try but next time you have access to a 3D printer, this "finger nut wrench" looks useful: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:947423 I'm thinking a workalike could be fashioned from an offcut of PVC conduit or the neck of a PET bottle.

    The job wasn't done with much in the way of tools at all--although your biggest flat-blade screwdriver does help in getting the rear caps off. Example here. I usually send my better half away when doing a job like this--I can be as nasty as I want then.

    Inevitably, one of the push-in fasteners flew off somewhere into the body, but I've got plenty of spares.

    As the video illustrates, there's a good reason for using genuine Philips lamps--the market has been swamped with Chinese counterfeit junk to the extent that Philips now puts a hologram and security codes on the packaging that you verify on their web site.
