12v outlet removal?

I have a 2018 3dr hatch. I'm installing the LED lighting kit that Toyota sold years back. I want to connect the power wire directly to the 12v outlet/cig lighter, and not use the janky splice connectors included. Problem is I can't find how to remove the 12v outlet, its like the whole dash has to come out...

Any help?? Will a Haynes book have the info?

The service manual talks about first removing the air conditioning control assembly. This appears to be so you can access the rear of the power outlet to unplug the wiring connector.

If you look inside the outlet socket, you should see a plastic tabon the left. This should be pushed bach with a screwdriver wrapped in electrical tape. The socket can then be rotated clockwise, and will come halfway out.

There is then a protrusion on the socket which needs to be aligned with a cutout in the socket cover to pull it the rest of the way out.
Running on standard AU 14" steel wheels (14x5 rims, 175/70R14 tyres). Added reversing camera and touch screen radio, cruise control, 16" rear wiper blade, tow bar and dash cam.
