Default 09 spectra headlight bulb replacement

I'm having a really hard time trying to change my passenger side headlight bulb. I have tried just un-screwing the cap on the back of the headlight and changing the bulb but i cant seem to get my hand in there to re attach the retention clip seeing that the windshield wiper fluid spout is in the way. Any recommendations?
