    'tis a pain to remove, IIRC there is a lug that locks it in place when it it pushed into the console. I removed mine on my old '03, but did it when the centre console was removed so I could access it from underneath which was easier but still fiddly!

    I think the actual cig unit will be the same as the Vectra B's.

    If this is the case then the metal part needs to be prized out of the plastic section. It should then come free.

    The unit is an odd shape as it has a part where the courtesy light fits on the plastic section. When its all together you can't manouvere it out the hole because the metal section makes it too long. You need to pull the metal bit out first and then the plastic part will come out. There are some retaining clips that keep the metal part attached, so its a pain to remove.

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi (VXR Styling)

    Engine : Z19DTH (Re-mapped)

    Year : 04

    Mileage : 110k

    Default

    I open the ashtray... then remove the gear surround...

    That free's up some space to get the full ashtray out. clip seems a little tight on the right side but just pull out and up towards the hand brake...

    The cig lighter surround is the same, out and up. and you can even pull the cubby hole out...

    It can all be done by hand within seconds... then you can get to it from behind
