    confused cigarette lighter removal

    My lighter works intermittently which makes charging the phone a pain...Any ideas how I remove it?.. I have got the surrounding panels/parts off and cant work out how to remove the broken lighter.

    I bought a Halfords replacement...is the wiring the same?..

    Unplug from the wiring loom and squash it with pliers and screwdrivers.

    I couldn't get mine out without breaking it. Ended up getting another from a breaker..I was able to break the surround to remove it.

    It's weird...there must be a way to take it out of the hole. How did you put new one in? Is it possible to change the bulb inside without taking out lighter?

    It's quite tricky, there are two pins that holds the metal part to the plastic one.


    You need to lever them out, to be able to pull the metal part and then the plastic one.
    I've tried with small flat screwdriver ... but for some reason I couldn't do it :-(
    Then I tried to turn the metal part counter clockwise, so I got the pins off the slots and then I managed to pulled it out.



    But a couple of months after that I tried to that again ... couldn't do it :-) I had to pull the whole console out :-(


    PS: according to TIS, you could just use a flat screwdriver to lever up the metal part ...
