Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
The plastic bezel has broken. 2 screws at the bottom remove the bezel enough to unplug the power and ground. A sleeve around the lighter body then unscrews to release the lighter. I made a washer with the ID of the ligher body and the OD of the bezel socket. If there is enough of the bezel remaining, the washer will prevent the lighter from being pushed through the bezel. If not much of the bezel hole is left, you can epoxy the washer in place. Put the lighter back into the hole, screw on the sleeve and reconnect the power and ground. Replace the bezel and screws and you are done. If you need help in making the washer, I can send you one reasonably and a whole lot cheaper than buying a new bezel. email@example.com

Keep in mind the lighter is energised even when the switch is off in a lot of cars. If you can find the fuse, take it out until you finish repairs.
