Yes, I removed mine when I had new wood effect flooring put down, gently prise of the top covers, then there are screws on the underneath plate then it will lift out, the hole goes right through to the out side, if you want to replace the cover plate new ones will be in order as most distort on getting them off.

Good luck

Yes.

It has a stainless steel cover which is attached with double sided tape.

If you can slide a thin knife blade under the cover and apply persistent but gentle pressure it will eventually lift off the socket. If you get impatient you'll bend the cover and have to buy a new one if you ever want to refit the socket.

The socket is then screwed to the plywood floor with (IIRC) 6 screws. It took an impact driver to get some of them out in my old 1995 Executive, as they were age/corrosion bonded into the ply.

I'll leave it to you to decide how to fill the hole, maybe a plywood bung drilled with a hole saw and glued in, or similar?

Have a look at my old flooring thread to see what it can look like:

Use a hair dryer to loosen the glue. Will come off easily then.

Good reminder, I think that you may have mentioned this before, when I bent my covers getting them off. up! hugegrins
