I replaced the oem lighter with an aftermarket one as it stopped working properly and lots of times I cant find a light and I get stuck without one till I reach my destination. Not good!
1- Take out the center console
2- Unplug the 12v+ connector and twist the bulb and get it out
3- Remove the nut on the lighter and disassemble it
4- Unscrew the round metal frame on top around the center and pull the old lighter out, its a thin nut.
5- New lighter with my old cadillac plug, I bought this without knowing whether it will fit thus I had to do some customization to make it fit. Be sure to get the correct one
6- unscrew the silver metal frame around the lighter and screw it back in with the ashtray mount in between, the new lighter came with the ground mounted on it, wont fit so i took it off.
7- Put the oem frame back on, it wont fit right so I had to customize it a bit, just make sure its firm on the lighter so the connectors dont disconnect. Also I had to make the 12v+ connector a little smaller to fit into the connector.
8- Put everything back together, plug the bulb and the 12v+ connector.
9- Try the lighter
10- Phone charger
Boom now any kind of lighter fits perfectly in there as well as any kind of charger.
