Removing cigarette/power lighter cover

I am trying to remove the cover to the power/cigarette lighter without scratching up the console. I got the "eject" button to take its place. Any tricks? This puppy is on there good! I've tried gently prying if off with flat head wrapped in a rag but no luck.

To can use a thin pin or rod and push the metal rod out of the hinge on the left. This allows you to take the cover off with removing the entire thing. The Eject button from BT will fit snug and the hinge is still visible. This gives the appearance that it was that way from the factory. I did mine that way and looks great. You can still pop the eject button out and use the power source if needed.

I like the look of the hinged cover. I think it's a nice touch. Of course, I like peanut butter and bacon sandwiches too.

Once you get it figured out, I'd love so see a pic of the new one in place.

Here are some pics of my Cig Delete with Eject button. I have a 2009 RT and don't know if that makes a difference. Took these with an iPhone so the quality is not great; but I think it gets the idea across.

This shows the stock cap and you can see there is a metal piece in the hinge.


I took a very small eyeglasses repair screwdriver and pushed up from the bottom to remove the pin.


Hear is what it looks like with the cap removed.


And these show the Eject button in place.




Happy to answer or clarify anything else. By doing it this way, makes it very easy to go back to stock while not losing the functional power source.

Chuck,

Thanks for the pics but think I must be dense. I couldn't get mine to move. Any tricks? Maybe a smaller pin...

Thanks,
L.I.T.
