Does anyone know how to remove the front 12v cigarette lighter/adapter housing under the shifter?

Thanks

I' not sue how you would remove the plug, but if you pull the right side panel off the center counsel, you may get at it that way. I broke into the plug wiring to hard wire my dashcam.

Yea I removed both side panels and can see it but it's still hard to get to and I can't see exactly how to remove it.
Even just removing the flip up cover may work but don't think that's possible either without breaking it.

For $15 I just bought a 12v adapter and plugged it in behind the console instead of wrestling with removing the existing one.

That's what I did. I broke into the wires going to the plug and soldered in another 12V plug. I then plugged the dashcam to that. It is ignition switch controlled. The recommendation I had got that if you want the parking mode, that you should purchase an external power supply, if not you could drain the battery.

I actually unplugged the 12v adapter from behind and plugged it into a new 12v adapter I got from my local Honda dealer, so I didn't cut any wires.

ya.....I didnt think it would be OK to use parking mode with the cheap little battery in the CRV,s

I suppose if one has no idea about soldering, or other things that my way is not the best. However, do as you wish. Mine works and is not an issue.

Well different projects will just call for different solutions depending on skill levels if you diy.
For me , I was installing a built in wireless charger and needed a 12v plug but didn't have room for the charging base and the 12v plug in the small area under the shifter, so rather than wrestling with trying to remove the 12v adapter which didn't seem easy I just unplugged it from behind and plugged it into another Honda part 12v adapter behind the center console.
