LOW BEAM HEADLIGHT REPLACEMENT QUESTION (CLIP

2005 SAAB 9-5

2005 Saab 9-5 53000 miles

I am trying to replace a low beam headlight on the passenger side of the car.

I was able to get the old bulb out ok, but I have had no luck in getting it back in place with the clip that holds the light and socket in place.

Is there a special tool that Saab uses, a special trick that I'm missing, or are my hands just too big? I can't seem to come close to getting that clip back in place. I don't want to resort to my father's favorite fix and duct tape the thing in there, but I'm starting to understand the man more every day.

Thanks for any help.
