    Hello!
    I have a broken front cigarette lighter in the centre console of my B6 Avant, and need to remove the old one and fit the new one which Ive ordered.
    i cant see how to remove it, and am thinking that it must come out from the back of the centre console, which I assume means that I have to remove it! Is it a big job? Any advice would be much appreciated!

    easy job but time consuming you have to remove the whole console. start by removing the stereo, air-con unit, gear lever surround, front ashtray these will uncover most of the bolts. remove the armrest and rear ashtray aswell, the last 2 screws are under the dash beneath a plastic cover one at each side

    Hi guys,
    Got it sorted by just persuading it out from above! Had to make some small cuts in the housing but fits back in no problem. Thanks for the help
