Just follow my simple little guide and get rid of that look! 8)

Right, enough Jibba Jabba! Let's crack on! :!:
First of all, get your bonnet open and have a good look at the back of your light cluster, in the FAR corner you will see a 4" white piece of plastic (the bulb holder for the indicator) like this:
It is shaped like a + from a rear view, simply slide your hand down (loads of room on passenger side, bit tight on drivers but still not an issue) grasp onto it and turn clockwise(when stood at the front of the car facing towards the rear) so it clicks out of place (don't be afraid to use force, it is tight... just twist)
Then, remove the unit (this white thing is the complete bulb holder for the indicator, NO WIRES need disconnecting) and you will be left with this:
Comparison of the two bulbs:
The bulb is like your simple Bayonet fitting in your home, Push the bulb down and twist out, Reverse the process to put the bulb in.
Simply place your new bulb in its holder, look at the front of your headlight and get the bulb through the hole, simply twist anti clockwise until it locks into place (again it gets tight so use a bit of force).
If it will not go in, turn the bulb holder around some more and try again, it should go back in with no problems.
Leaving you with this tidy result!
P.S do not ask your pets to help, and keep sponges out of their reach, otherwise it may result in Epic cuteness!
Hope this helps you all. :P
