Cigarette lighter

(1999 Ford Taurus)
in Centerville, IN on April 19, 2009
How do you access the cigarette lighter in the center console to repair it? It has come undone and needs to be put back together but I can't figure out how to get at the back side of the lighter.

Usually you have to remove the center console. look at the bottom of the storage compartments, you should find screws. removed the screws there should be 4-6 and lift up the center console and you should be able to access the lighter. Two screws should be close to the dash panel, two towards the rear of the center console 2 more in the center area. You may have to move the shifter out of park to mvoe the center console. Good luck.
