Slide a credit card or something very flat and thin in between the obc and the pocket. You will feel the obc releasing the pocket when you pull in the pocket from a small hole on the top of the pocket. Words of caution: Do not by all mean yank on it beauce that how you break stuff, nice steady pressure or in your case pulling will do the trick once the obc is released. As soon as you the pocket out you are home free. The whole lighter and switch panel comes out with ease. Hope this helps.

You can take out the obc but the pocket is the first thing that has to come out.

I've always found it easier to get the OBC out first. The pocket comes out much easier after that.

Isn't the cigarette lighter constantly giving power, even when the car is off? Maybe you should disconnect the car battery/pull the fuse to it just in case. I've never done this before, but I don't want you zapped, yah.

If you wanna do it the right way, the OBC comes out first, then slide the pocket up and out.

At the top of the pocket, right underneath the OBC there is a hole. Stick your finger in there and grab the bottom of the OBC, and pull out. It's just velcro'd in.

Read the thread again. He needs to fix the cigarette lighter, which is part of the pocket. And you need to lift off the OBC to remove the pocket. He's not talking about the shift console.
