Actually, if you look at the new auction it appears to ALSO have shill bidders! I've reported that one as well.

However, I HIGHLY doubt ebay will do anything. They don't seem to care anymore.

It MAY have been a dealer install. They LOVED to bypass GM rules and install aftermarket radios, tape decks, etc... More profit for them that way.

Bought mine from Right Stuff Detailing www.getdiscbrakes.com.   Replaced all the brake lines with stainless.   Everything fit ok & matched original (except for the stainless steel finish).

Yep. Schill bidder. I reported the old auction and invite others to do the same.

To report shill bidding:

Shill bidding is where the seller uses another account to bid on their own item to increase the price and they should be reported.
On the listing page which you are reporting you need to click on the blue Report Item,(above the Item number and to the right of the Description and Postage tabs.
Click on the arrow on the Report Category box,(it will bring up a drop down menu).
Click on: Listing Practices
Then click on the next box: Reason for Report and select Fraudulent listing activities.
Then on the Detailed Reason select seller is using other accounts to inflate item price.
Then click continue.
Then once the box with the listing number comes up,click send report.

I seem to recall it's metal on metal where they screw together, and on a good day can be tight unless you can possibly get some type of lube on the threads.  If a PO stripped them, you may wind up destroying part of it when disassembling.  My best suggestion is to look at the AIM or repops to fully understand how it fits together, then have at it.  Make sure you are turning the piece up under the dash in the right direction, and you may have to go back and forth a lot until it frees up.

THanks for the info.  I was able to reach up under the dash and could not locate a wire attached to the back of the lighter.  This is probably an aftermarket wiring harness.  Does the retainer sleeve on the inside of the dash unscrew from the inside?  I did try to turn it, but it would not move, although I didn't try very hard because I didn't want to break something.  I did try twisting the bezel on the dash side, managed to scratch it up.  It did turn, but nothing came loose.

Will chek the AIM also

thx
