I am trying to remove the lighter to replace it, have tried and tried, no idea how to get it out of the plastic recessed panel.

Any help much appreciated

Usually they have a big nut holding them in or else two little clips that u push in and it slides out the front end

Thanks Graham, no big nut (on the lighter housing anyway} and I can see one plastic protrusion that could be holding it in, but got no idea how to move it or push it.

there should be a push and release inside lighter barrel push it down and pull barrel out. can be a frustrating exercise

In my case push it up, but it don't seem to move enough to release the lighter, I think a hacksaw might be the tool to do it soon lol

my 80 series one fell apart and it was fun putting it back together. I think you remove the steel housing that holds the illimination light first.
