How to remove Power Socket / Lighter

Anyone ever get this figured out? I have an 04 Armada I'm trying to remove the sockets from. I'm swapping out the cluster lid D and I've already broken one socket. I later found this diagram but using a small screwdriver to press the plastic squares has yielding zero results.

I'm confused by the phrase "while pressing the hook (B)".

Another way to ask the question may be, has anyone ever replaced a cap over the power socket? It appears you would have to remove the power socket for that as well.

Follow up, anyone have the part number on that cap? I had one broken in the rear of the vehicle but now I'm REALLY broken the one up front on the driver's side.

So, i really recommend anyone doing this - grab a set of snap ring pliers.....not any set, as most snap ring pliers have tips that are orientated 90 degree's - hence to spread a snap ring....

However, a few snap ring pliers ive seen have adjustable tips that can be rotated/orientated 180degree's from one another and work very well for this power socket application.

the tabs "B" need to be pushed on together at the SAME TIME - in order to pull silver body of the power socket Forward and OUT toward you., from there you disconnect the electrical connection and the plastic fascia ring with the door will come free from the body molding.

notice how the tips of the snap ring pliers i attached can be rotated 180 from each other, slide inside the power socket and be used to spread the tabs to remove the power socket.

this worked....one of my pliers though, didnt fit, so i had to trim down the tips to work inside the small diameter of the power socket...

just fyi..

Otherwise, nissan dealer parts department does sell the plastic door by itself, be sure to install it on the car molding with the wire connector running through the middle of it first...THEN, connect the wire connector to the power socket metal sleeve and press it into the plastic door ring.
