How do you remove a cigarette lighter socket

I'm assuming this is the lighter in the center console by the beverage holder? If not I'll need more details.
First you have to make sure the power is cut to it, so either pull the fuse or disconnect the battery. Warning, disconnecting the battery WILL reset things like radio settings and clocks.
Now get yourself a flat-head screwdriver. You want to carefully unsnap the front of the beverage holder console, and once the front is unsnapped you can lift it to unsnap the rear of the beverage holder console and remove it.
Now grasp the top part of the cigarette lighter's panel and pull it straight out. Make sure you don't yank on the electrical connections. I'd suggest unplugging them so you can work on the lighter easier.
From there you simply have to unscrew the retainer from the socket and remove the lighter.
If you're installing a new one, just reverse the process.

I am trying to replace the middle console in my 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse, but one of the wires will not. One off of the cigarette lighter

i take my center console off all the time and the wires on the back of the lighter come off real easy, the black one i believe is the light bulb so you need to turn it to pull it out, then when you go to put it back, line the nobs up then turn it when its back in.

Fuse Keeps Blowing

maybe a bad lighter socket or wires in the back of it.
You don't have to remove the center console to check the cigarette lighter electrical connection. Just pluck the base out of the hole and you will know if it is connected properly back there ....Or replace it. Not big bucks at all :)

There is no power coming from the cigarette lighter. Where is the fuse for the cigarette lighter?

I have a 2001 sunfire. The fuse box is on the drivers side on the panel between the dash and the door. There should be a door and the guide should be on the back of the door.

I didn't see the cig lighter mentioned in my online resource, but with my experience on GM vehicles, the under dash driver's side fuse box usually has a cig lighter fuse listed. If not, then you'll have to get a fuse tester and test each and every fuse until you find the burnt out one.

If the fuse is not burnt out, there may be a broken wire behind the console.
