1978 SC dash damage

Someone stole my radio from my 1978 911SC. In the process the person tore up the dash. I have to replace the right side dash cover, I have everything apart with the exception of the cig lighter. It has a plastic ring around the lighter that I can not get off. The plastic piece has to be removed to install the dash cover. I tried to turn it off with no luck. Looks like it would be easy to break.

I am so sorry for you. When this happens, I feel violated.

The beauty ring likely screws off. You are unscrewing it from the lighter unit. Worse case scenario, you may need to DISCONNECT THE BATTERY NEGATIVE TERMINAL, remove the air box, unplug the lighter wiring and unscrew the lighter from the beauty ring.
