    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    Undo the 2 torx screws on the top, carefully prise off the cover over the lighter, and then wiggle the assembly off - the lighter side is a bugger to get loose but as the old adage goes

    "keep pulling at it and it will come" off

    easy.

    1. pop the little panel below the ashtray up with a small bladed screwdriver.
    2. remove the two tox that you will now be able to see.
    3. open ashtray, remove the one torx you can see.
    4. Remove little bit of plastic around the cigarette lighter, be careful not to break it, its tight but does come off.
    5. Remove last torx.
    6. Wiggle the hole assembly out, disconnect cigareete light wiring harness.
