Default Low beam headlight replacement issue, Volvo s60 2005. HELP!

Okay, I have spent hours on trying to replace the low beam headlight on my passenger side. yes its a very tight squeze to get my fingers in there. As far as I can tell the 2005 model does NOT have the metal clip holder. I can feel the bulb and look throught the front headlight as i turn to release it... but I cannot get it to pull out completely.. its as if one of the three metal "flaps" on the bulb is too big to be pulled out. Seems simple enough but I cannot get the bulb out.. help!!! Am I missing something?

No one has any input? I have changed numerous bulbs on this car as well as changed oil, transmission fluids ect.. I am pretty handy but cant figure this one out... I am going to try again later today.. there must be a trick to it..

thanks for all the expert advice.... anyways...

for the next person.. once I looked at the other one I figured out that there was a tiny little piece of metal at a 90 degree angle that i must have bent when I turned the lightbulb and it was preventing the bulb from coming out now since it was flat and blocking part of the hole.. I jammed a thin screwdrive in the edge from behind and was able to bend it back and pull out the light bulb with ease... actually they are a peice of cake to change even with very little room.
