Help a brother out
Driving a '08 Alfa Romeo 147 Q2 and my cigarette lighter bulb is intermittently working, so today I tried to get it changed.
I looked Elearn and it says it should be a straight forward job, remove the cigar lighter socket, change the bulb and put it back on ... big no no. :tut:
I tried almost anything and bloody socket just won't pop out. Tried turning it clockwise counter clockwise (no movement), undid the gear leather to get access - removed the ashtray, removed the connector and it just won't go out.
I even broke part of the plastic trying to take the socket out.
It is like something is holding it like glued from just one side and it won't give up.
Feel stupid, but really can't get it out without breaking.
Attaching image where it seems stucked.
Tell me what am I doing wrong?
