    Most ciggy lighters are the same basic design, (fancy trim aside) whether they be F**d, Vx or whatever, and they are a right royal pain in the ass to get out, they are usually damn tight.
    Basically the inner metal part slides into the outer plastic part, they clip together, and the outer part clips into the panel it is mounted in at the same time, if that makes sense.
    To remove, you need to slide the inner metal part up, out of the outer plastic ring. This is easier said than done because they are usually so tight.
    Remove enough trim to get access behind the lighter, hold the outer plastic ring, and from behind/below push the inner core up. Good luck, lol.

    They are all similar to this, if it helps.
