Had to do that in my vert. Hate it when people do that. Sort of a hard area to work in.

Yeah I hate when they are hacked up....at least my other two beetles don't need this repair.

Thanks! Sorry I missed you....I tried to stay in the shade but didn't sit much.... What are you wanting to know about the cigarette lighter?

So it just a lighter in the front of the ashtray. Can you still open it? I thought their may be some advantage to it like putting the stock ashtray back in. Just never seen that before.

You can still open it but wire length can be a issue if you don't leave enough slack... And there is no need for me to open it. I don't think I had the lighter part in at the show but with it in it looks like a stock ashtray with the ivory knob.

I got the idea from Eric! Here is a couple pics that I just took with and without the lighter/knob.
