2001 Saab 9-5 SE Cigarette lighter installation

I'm trying to remove and install a new 12 volt power socket. I'm having a problem removing the original one in my Saab. I've have everything apart but can't get the bleeping socket out. Anyone have any descriptive instructions or pictures on how to get it out. I'd very much appreciate any suggestions on this.

There are several dash styles. The link below is for bulb replacement but may help for the well assembly.
A dash pocket instead of an ashtray requires the pocket to be removed.

Most of the sockets just snap in.
If you have the old metal style..... the back part of the well unscrews like a cover.
