How To..Unlock Cigarette Lighter
 
How do you replace the cig lighter? My pass side lighter havent been working for a while and i finally decided to replace it. I took the center console off and unhooked all the plugs but i cant seem to get that sucker out.

Hopefully this helps:

REMOVAL
1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.
2. Pull the cigar lighter knob and element (1) out of
the cigar lighter receptacle base (6), or unsnap the
protective cap from the power outlet receptacle
base (6).
3. Look inside the cigar lighter or power outlet receptacle
base and note the position of the rectangular
retaining bosses (3) of the mount that secures the
receptacle base to the panel (4).
4. Insert a pair of external snap ring pliers (5) into the
cigar lighter or power outlet receptacle base and
engage the tips of the pliers with the retaining
bosses of the mount.
5. Squeeze the pliers to disengage the mount retaining
bosses from the receptacle base and, using a
gentle rocking motion, pull the pliers and the receptacle
base out of the mount.
6. Pull the receptacle base away from the instrument
panel far enough to access the instrument panel
wire harness connector (2).
7. Disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector (2) from the cigar lighter or power outlet receptacle base
(6).
8. Remove the cigar lighter or power outlet mount from the instrument panel.

Sounds like you have to take the inside out first with pliers...
