There might be some kind of paneling or retaining ring on the outside of it that needs to be removed first. I'd remove the battery before playing with it, because a lot of cars keep the cigarette lighter hot at all times. (current flowing) But once you can get to the lighter holder, the inside actually screws out from the inside part. And this can be a pain, cause while your chopping your fingers up on the sheetmetal the wires in the back of it usually twist around and give a bit of resistance. Once they are seperated, the electrical connections on the back can be removed. I've removed/replaced at least 10 of em. Crude diagram:

How do you change a cigarette lighter in a suzuki sidekick?

Take the ashtray out and remoive the 4 screws you see there. Then, take the stereo out and remove the other two screws that hold the faceplate on. Remove the knobss off the heating/cooling controls. Slide the face plate off and guide the heater controls through the opening. You now have a clear view and easy access tothe back of the cigarette lighter assembly. Unplug the electrical connector and unscrew the locknut from behind the cigarette lighter receptacle. The whole assembly should come out along with the small rectagular metal plate that goes around the receptacle. If you have very small hands and you have three of them, you can also remove the lighter by going up behind the console by hump on the driver's side. Good luck! And, good luck finding a replacement. New ones can cost as much as $70! K

Remove the cigarette lighter. Then on the same panel where the cigarette lighter is located slowly pry the panel out. It is held in place by pins. Once that panel is removed you will see a few screws (three I believe) that need to be removed in order to get the radio out.
