A job for the vertically challenged?

I had a device fall to pieces in the cigar lighter socket of my Mk2 Focus which blew a 20 amp fuse.
The fuse is in a panel underneath the fascia on the passenger side hidden behind a section of trim.
This is in the passenger foot-well area and in order for a 6' 1" person to gain access I either have to stand on my head lying upside down in the seat or lay in the foot-well with my body and legs hanging out of the door.
It's a job for a vertically challenged person or a contortionist.
As I am neither I eventually managed the fuse replacement job amid numerous curses directed at Ford's designers

I was a combination of  the Ford manual (chocolate fire-guard), Haynes manual (somewhat better) and Ford forums (conflicting advice).

The fuses were far more accessible on the Megané.......
