    I wasn't able to remove it, maybe the whole surround comes off but I felt the same as you for fear of breaking it when pulling.

    The trim around the ciggy lighter comes off first (carefull, try not break the tabs), then remove the ashtray completely, then the ciggy lighter comes up away from the illuminated ring so you can remove the ciggy lighter light, then the illuminated ring pulls out.

    Take trim from gearstick surround off, then remove ashtray insert, then remove ashtray. Remove storage compartment above ashtray this makes it easier to get your hands in as the socket is tightr to get out. Then remove trim around socket. Push metal housing up and unplug and finally remove socket trim.
