Lost lighter adapter in console

Went to use the lighter the other day and pushed it in and the whole thing went right through the bezel. I know I have to take it off to get to it - is there a certain tool I need to take the bezel off?

7 mm socket or wrench.. there is just 2 bolts on the bottom right above your AC controls. after those are out just grab the bezel and give it a slight tug. there is clips that hold it so it will be a lil "stiff"

HAR HAR HAR - WELL Since it took forever to get a response (j.k.) I already fixed it :P AND for the record.. I don't have nails..

****ty go though since there was still a tiny bit of the plastic rim on half of it.. so after pulling it apart since I was going to be painting anyways - I got it through and with all that done yesterday- It turned out pretty cool. Now if I could get the rest of the dash done today... I'll be happy.

Nice color choice! Is that metal flake I see??? Looks "sparkly". Is that your exterior color?

The outside color is Arizona Beige - I'm not that fond of the interior. But I used a flat burgendy with a black metallic on top to give it that black cherry look. I'm going to do a few more pieces like that and the rest with the black metallic. The headliner I'm going to replace with a swirly black velvet, and the carpet will be black. It's about time I do something to this truck, I've had it for 3 1/2 years.
