At the moment my cig lighter isn't work just wondering how would i be able to take it out or how much would it cost on replacing it

Also Window Winder is stiff on the turning what would be the best stuff to put on it
so make it easier to turn

Very common for the lighter socket to come loose so the wires short out at the back which blows the fuse. A ten minute job to tighten the nut to hold the socket in place. You need to take the top off your console to get to the nut. Just remove the little rubber tray below your radio so you can get to the two screws that need to be undone then lift the back section up first which is held in place by clips. If you have power windows you can lever out the panel that has the power window buttons in it so you can get your fingers under the top of the console to lift it out.
Try a bit of silicone spray on the window winder. The windows can get tight in the tracks that they run through in the doors so a bit of silicone spray on the edge of the window helps.

don't use grease on the actual tracks that the glass runs up and down in (this will just cause a mess!), but yes, use grease on the linkages in the door, and all the pivots and plastic cables.
I'd also recommend a "dry lube" like graphite powder down the tracks down the side, as it won't leave a sticky mess on the glass like grease/wd40/sillicone spray.

good luck with it!

Spudley.
