How Do I Remove Cig Lighter

Recommended Posts

I had a power converter plugged into cigarette lighter in Rx300 and it quit working. Checked fuses, all good. I need to pull the cig lighter to see what the problem may be. How do I get behind it?

Thanks for your help.

You need to remove the wood "U" piece that surrounds the radio controls etc. (it's attached to the black plastic piece the cig lighter is on).

1. Put the key setting to accessory.

2. Put your foot on the brake, move the shifter to N. (make sure you're not on a hill...)

3. Gently pry the wood bezel piece out with a screwdriver. See the attached picture. The wood piece is attached to the black plastic that surrounds the shifter.

It is attached with clips, so a little outward pressure will do the trick. Just make sure not to chip the wood or scratch the console plastic. You should be able to know where to pull as soon as you have the bottom pulled away.

You should leave the shifter in N so you have enough room to pull the bezel away from the console.

Good luck! Ask if you have any problems <_<

On my RX300 (1999), the cigarette lighter at the bottom of the center console does not work. How do I get to a replace that?

Thanks
