cigarette lighter assy. removal

Has anyone here ever remove an entire cigarette lighter assembly on a 69 camaro? If so how does that bugger come out of there?

Re: cigarette lighter assy. removal

there is a thin metal collar that screws onto the lighter piece from below/behind the tray. Unscrew it like you would a nut and the whole sleeve comes off, releasing the plug from the front of the tray.

On my 68 I pulled out the heater controls if memory serves me right.

Re: cigarette lighter assy. removal

I just did this little job on my 69. Its easy if you have the ashtray out, and for that I had to remove all the plastic ducts behind it. Anyhow, the cigarette lighter housing srews off from behind as mentioned before. If it wont budge, you can put a screw driver in the slots where the lighter/knob sits, and then use pliars to grab the whole back collar and turn. You can see the threads in the back where the wire clips on. I used a pen shaped dremel wire brush to get in and clean where the element contacts. It was pretty rusted up but cleaned up nicely.
