I am replacing the factory radio in a '97 SR5 4runner, the lighter does NOT come off like a Normal lighter. Usually, they just twist/unscrew and voila! This one has plastic tabs that need to be accessed from behind the trim. I fully removed the trim (due to radio install) and STILL broke a small plastic tab off the retaining clip while trying to remove the lighter. Bummer, but no one will see and it doesn't affect normal operation! hope this helps. Very easily follow instructions to remove the stereo (Crutchfiled.com). The 12v plug (lighter socket) is attached to the center housing (usually black on all 4Runners) has two electrical plugs to the back of the lisghter socket: one for the 12v feed, the other for the green illumination lamp. The lighter socket itself will twist out and a replacement lighter socket can be purchased at a junkyard or local dealer.
