    12 volt socket on top of dash

    Hi, does anyone else here find that the socket is a pain, due to how tight the fit is and gives a feel of self destruct on extracting the plug. If so, have you done anything to alleviate having to hold the dash down

    Cigarette lighter removal? Argh.

    All tips and hints gratefully received. How in the big man up stairs name do you get the 12v socket out of the dash. My knuckles are red raw. I can see it, take photos of it. But can I get it out, NO.
