When the old bulb is out, you look in there again to identify your locating notches in the holder, and make sure you're gripping the bulb base most suitably to fit straight in and avoid skin contact with the glass.
Havent got a mirror .
Havent had one for at least 300 yrs

I feel quite privileged having small ( for a bloke) hands I take a glove size 7! Because the nearside dip
beam blew I had to carry out this onerous task last week and it took less than 5 minutes.
I wear Latex gloves to afford some grip, remove the fuse box lid, carefully bend the wiring
so I can get my hand in and unscrew the cap, remove the lamp connector, ping off the retaining clip
etc. On re-assembly a smear of vaseline or similar light grease on the cap thread helps
for the next time!

Yet another use for vaseline!!!
