Default 12V power points

I've managed to break 2 out of the 3 from plugging my cellphone charger into them. The one in the back of the center consol pushed through the other day, I can see it sitting down there. And the one in the overhead consol has been broken for a long time, the top part of the mount broke. I'm wondering what the best way to access and fix these are. I dont really care about the one in the overhead consol, but I would like to fix it if possible.

Just a suggestion.... i have several appliances in the car that need 12V power via the cigaratte outlet so i ran two 12 ga wires from the battery into the car and under the carpet and have it pop out underneath the passenger seat. Then went to Radio shack and got a thing that has multiple cigarette outlets (these can take a beeting, and easy to replace). Its nice to hide the charger underneath the seat and grab the wire out when ever my phone needs a charge
