Hi all
Can anyone please tell me how to remove the ashtray housing unit in the centre console.I have removed the actual ashtray but i need to remove the unit where the ashtray sits and i think its the same unit which holds the cig lighter.I noticed there is a lot of ash underneath that unit and the wooden trim that is attached to it has become loose.I`ve also noticed that the driver`s side electric seat adjustment switch does not illuminate when i switch on the lights.Could it just be a bulb?

Thats what i`m talking about.The wooden bit thats loose is the small one that is attached to that ashtray housing unit.The one you see when you push the housing inside the centre console.Apparently its easier to screw back in but you have to remove that housing.But dont know how to remove it.
