    How do you remove the cigarette lighter socket without taking too much stuff apart? I plugged a fan into mine a while back and think it may have bent something on the inside and now my 12v spotlight doesnt fit well. I need to remove the socket and bend something out I think. I had a 92 toyota truck and I want to say that it just unscrewed but Im not sure.

    There's a couple of tabs that hold it in the panel. Pry inwards on those tabs slightly with a pick and u r golden!:top:

    some have tabs, some have a "sleeve" that threads onto the body of the cig. lighter itself and then just slides out after being unthreaded.
