    How in the heck do you get that thing out? I've got a 79 pickup, and the only thing i can think of is to just cut the ashtray with a torch. lol. /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    Pull the lighter part out, then the part you see next unscrews from the part that is in the back...good luck though, its a PITA.

    Yeah, the back has a sort of threaded sleeve that runs up over the inner (ground) cylinder.

    What is really fun is putting that wire back in.. Most of the time the wire is really short and you have to put it back in by feel..
