    Lighter housing is two piece...outer housing unscrews from inner housing from back of bezel. Inner housing slips out the bezel face once unscrewed.

    I put a thick leather glove on my hand and stuck my thumb inside to hold it.

    Some of them are pretty stubborn and you may do more damage than good with a pliers.
