    Default swap cigarette lighter for..........

    ....an accessory socket

    The tomtom power cable as well as the charger for my mobile don't seem to like the cigarette lighter very much (they keep coming out) and I wondered if it was possible to change it for the power socket? Anyone any ideas?

    Is it a big job?
    What is the part number for the socket?

    Cheers

    Dead easy - simple straight swop over of the parts.

    I changed my cig lighter for accessory socket, as said you do need a different charcoal metallic trim.
    Not sure if I have part numbers, but will have a look for the receipt.

    Metallic trim 13138180
    Acc Socket (two parts) 13169372 & 13110430

    Worth double checking the numbers at the dealers prior to ordering,


    Hope this helps,

    Paul.

    Wouldn't have thought any more than £20. Give the dealers a ring with the part numbers.

    thanx boys, i'll be ordering the parts on Monday from the miserable g*t on the parts desk at our local stealers.

    By the way, have managed to remove the top silver cover, how do I get the lighter out?
