2010 F250 extended cab. The 12 volt convenience (cigarette lighter) outlet on the rear of the center counsel, will pull out of the counsel when trying to detatch a power cord. There doesn't appear to be anything holding it in other than the very thin plastic wall of the counsel it is mounted in.
I use the outlet a lot in my job. I power a vhf monitor radio, Garmin, spectrum analyzer, cell phone charger, as well as my laptop in a pinch. Not all at once, of course.
Am I missing a part? Does anyone have a fix for this? Unless I use both hands and a whole lot of careful wiggling, I always pull the electrical guts clear out of the counsel.
Awfully cheap way to mount the rear 12 volt convenience outlet imho.
I replaced my shorted front convenience outlet with a 3M brand one from Walmart - worked great after some minor trimming, and 1/5 the cost of the Ford part. It's a screw-together design that won't pop out like yours is, but you'll have to do some custom wiring if you go this way.
