My 12v socket in glove box is not working, it's not the fuse
How easy is it to get it out and replace please?

No idea on an Xevo but if it's the same as an X9 then it has to be pressed out from behind.

Ok thanks
I imagine that means taking off plastic parts to access it

Again on the X9 the outer ground of the socket tends to corrode and then fails to give a clean connection. The occasional rub with some emery paper and a squirt of WD40 usually restores the connection for a while. The wiring connects with a proper plug onto terminals in the socket rear, unlike car ciggy sockets that often have a stub with a female bullet connector, so the likelihood of it coming off is slim, they are quite tricky to get off, so unless it's been disconnected to remove a panel and forgotten to be re-connected I bet it's corrosion.

The unit is a push fit from the front. I used a large bladed screwdriver and gently persuaded it to release applying leverage towards the centre. The retaining lugs are at 3 and 9 0'clock. Hope this makes sense.
