Someone tried to shut my center console while my iPhone was in the dock and this damaged the lightning connector in the console. Luckily the phone was fine. It was pretty easy to disassemble the elements and remove the cable in question. When I received my center console it also came with a "blank" which I've replaced the lightning connector with until I have a chance to get a new cable. Picture of the dock and USB connector. Connector has been unplugged from the USB port closest to the driver. Note that there might be enough slack to get it to plug into a low profile USB cigarette lighter adaptor to take advantage of the higher current available at the lighter: Pulling the USB Cable up allows one to remove the floor of the charging station The actual docking connector is held in place by two Philips screws The connector can be opened up by removing two screws to reveal the cable The actual cable is about a foot in length and bears a Griffin Technologies logo. Here is the unit reassembled using the blank that was included.
