I am trying to replace a corroded cigarette lighter on a Peugeot 206, following this tutorial. As part of this I need to remove the inner metal sleeve up through the orange plastic sleeve:
This is apparently achieved by pushing out two retaining clips that connect silver metal to the orange sleeve. On the 206 I'm working on they are completely stuck however whatever I try.
Does anyone have any suggestions on either how to loosen the inner sleeve and take it out or an alternative method to remove the component (which can be destroyed in the process if needed).
It's a very tight space to work in (accessed from under the gear stick boot) so whatever I do will have to be by feel and there's a finite amount of force I can exert at that angle. Help would be appreciated!
