How to change a ciglighter

If it is mounted in the dashboard, a threaded cylinder fits over the lighter from behind and clamps it. IT IS ESSENTIAL TO DISCONNECT THE WIRE FROM THE LIGHTER AND TAPE IT WHILE WORKING. The wire always applies power to the lighter so it always is live. With the wire removed and taped, you can reach up behind the dashboard and grasp the threaded cylinder and twist it counterclockwise to remove it. You may have to wiggle the lighter assembly a little to start removal. The lighter can be pulled out from the front. The process is reversed to install the new lighter.

I am wanting to re-install my cigarette lighter, the pervious owner disconnected it when installing a new stereo, I have bought a new lighter but have no idea on how to wire it in, plus i have no idea

Black is ALWAYS ground, in an automobile. So, the White/Blue is your power!
Black to black, and White/Blue to red. And your all set!
Also, some cars the ignition key has to be in the "Run" position for the lighter to work!

How do A wire a replacement lighter when THe old one is no longer there?

The red wire on the replacement lighter is the hot wire. Hook it into the fuse panel if you can't find the old lead from the original lighter. If there is a black wire on the new lighter it is a ground. If there isn't a black one you may have to install one to ground the lighter depending on how you mount it. Just hook it up to the nut on the lighter and ground it.

How do you change the cigarette lighter in a 2005 Grand AM

The hardest part is getting access to the back of the lighter. Once you get there you'll find a single wire pushed onto the back of the lighter. Pull it off and you will be able to unscrew the rear of the lighter by hand. Once the back is removed the remainder of the lighter housing will come out through the front. Reverse the procedure to install the new lighter.
