Looking at pics online (from a search) it looks like there are springy tabs both on the plastic ring part and the metal barrel.Anyone know how to remove the cigarette lighter socket from a 2005 Peugeot 307? If I pull off the gear stick gaiter I can push my hand underneath and feel where the socket is but I can't remove it. Any ideas?
Why do you need to get at the cig.lighter?I had another look at this a couple of days ago. Tried pulling up the cigarette lighter socket but it doesn't want to come out. I need to access it so I can wire in an aftermarket stereo.
Can you post a link to the sort of thing I'd be looking for? Are they easy to fit? As you have probably guessed I don't really know what I'm doing!Peugeot (and on eBay) sells an adapter that's for fitting aftermarket HUs to cars with multiplex - for instance isolates the car's CAN-bus wires from possible outputs on those pins on the HU.

CAN-bus <> powerThanks for this! I had a look at the two links.
Unfortunately I am still confused. I was under the impression (based on what I've been told by Halfords/people on other web forums etc) that you must NEVER connect an aftermarket stereo directly to a Canbus socket and expect it to get power from the Canbus as it will damage the car. It seemed the general consensus was that you had to tap in a separate power supply, but I don't see any facility for this on either of those two adaptors you showed me - they just look like they plug directly into the car. Am I missing something?
I've got Peugeot's version of the first adapter linked (ISO-ISO) and it certainly powers my aftermarket HU, which however draws less power than the stock HU as it doesn't have any internal power amplifiers (all speakers are powered by a 6x75W amp in the trunk). If there is enough power available for a higher powered HU or not, I don't know.So are we saying that the adaptor cable CAN supply power to the aftermarket HU?
