Question about 2004 Ford F150
The power plug for a Garmin Nuvi GPS came apart in the 12 volt outlet and the small battery dropped into one of the slots in that outlet. Outlet isn't working now and I want to pull the outlet to get the battery out. What do I need to do/NOT do??
Are you talking about the cigar lighter in the center black panel, or the power point to the right of the radio ?
The center one, you need to pull the trim panel off. Open the ask tray, and give it a yank in both lower corners ( one at a time ) it is hard to do the first time, but there are 6 ( 8? ) spring clips holding it on.
Once you have the trim panel off, the cigar lighter is held in place by a plastic ring from the back. You need to push in the pins to get it off the back ( after unplugging the socket connector ).
To get to the power point, you need to do the same with trim panel removal, and push from the back of it. There are pins holding it into the silver dash panel.
If the fuse for the cigar lighter or power point ( 2 different fuses ) is already dead, just used needle nose pilars to pull the parts out. had the same thing with my Nuvi plug the first time. It is the fuse and nose for the fuse that is left in there.

The outside ring screws out of the socket to remove it. I always just stick 2 of my fingers into the socket and twist it.
