Oh and when prying the bezel around the shifter, be gentle. There are two pins at the top where the shifter bezel meets the radio bezel that are easy to break off. Still able to reinstall if they do break but they just lift up.
Josh, or Mr. Sparrow (Jack? lol..) You have the same exact car as me and you are a LIFESAVER!
Let me see if I find the courage. I did find the one alllll the way in the back, and that one works... I do want to upgrade radio, though. Looks like a weird size radio I need. . Double DIN?
I have always been afraid of removing trim pieces. Did take off shifter trim once, on a Volvo, to replace an illumination light. Minimal breakage.. I want NO breakage. Would you take it to someone "experienced in removing interior trim" (like a stereo installer) OR is it wicked easy, just be careful??? This car has never come apart.
And this cigarette lighter thing sounds... common.
Obviously, the voltage numbers illuminate in the socket that is right where the jack is. There ARE two.
No need for professionals, either use a small trim tool/ screwdriver to gently pull up on the trim closest to the cup holders. Once it’s free of the clips, assuming the pins haven’t been broken before they should slide back. Tested it on mine to make sure. Mines loose enough that I can actually just use my hand to pull it out but I have a broken pin from learning that lesson personally. Here’s a picture of the two screws I mentioned before and you can see the pin holes.
You can do it. No problem. Like I said just pry up to free it from the clips and then just slide it back till the pins are free. Hardest part of this whole process is the blind upside down screws that hold the bottom of the radio bezel in. Need a tiny ratchet screw driver/offset screwdriver or stubby to get to them. But more an aggravation than hard
