Cigarette lighter question; not electrical
« on: September 13, 2018, 08:38:56 AM »
Just purchased a new lighter from  , but can't figure out how to remove the old. I've read in a few places that the outer housing twists off, but i can't seem to get it to budge, maybe my hands are too big? Any tips, tricks advice?

It does come apart like you said.  Some are a bear to do if rust has formed.  You may find that taking the whole ashtray door off the dash is easier.

I tried that as well. How does it come out?
