Default Air Compressor blew Cigarette Lighter Assembly, $150 to replace?

Subaru Baja 2003: Plugged in an Air Compressor to get some air into kid's bike tire then found out the hard way that Air Compressors can blow the Cigarette Lighter out so that the entire Cigarette Assembly needs to be replaced! *This is not a Fuse problem.*

Subaru Dealership says it's $147 to order it. I asked if we could just go to the auto parts store and get the cigarette lighters listed as compatible with the car and the dealership actually tried to install them and they could not fix the problem. They said it has to be an original Subaru Baja part called Cigar Lighter Assembly. Another dealership told me the part number was 8710AE010 but when I tried to search for that Subaru part number - it did not come up with any search hits.

Can't believe it's $150 or no working cig lighter to power GPS or anything else. Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.
