Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Removing and installing cigarette lighter socket

  Note
The removal and installation procedure is the same for all sockets and is therefore described here only for the cigarette lighter socket.
  Caution
If excessive force is exerted on sockets without illumination, the retaining sleeve may be damaged.
Only illuminated sockets (cigarette lighter) can be removed with the puller T 40148.
The puller does not manage to release the locking lugs of sockets without illuminated retaining sleeve.
Usually sockets without illumination cannot be removed without being damaged.
