How to remove the cigar lighter on chevy suburban?
his morning I tried to remove the cigarette lighter housing in order to replace the lighter and see why I wasn't getting any power to it. I unscrewed all four bolts that held the housing in but it is too wide to pull out from the dash. ANYONE KNOW HOW TO TAKE IT OUT WITHOUT REMOVING THE ENTIRE DASH?
