    Default cigarette lighter

    New on here so hello to everyone. i just bought a Vectra C 2.2 sri and its great. everythings running cool and well....only i dont have a cigarette lighter. I dont smoke but the hole in the center console is really starting to hack me off. anyone know which exact one i should get? i know pretty much any will fit but i dont fancy it looking out of place. cheers guys and gals. Pyne.

    You mean there's nothing there?, not even a 12v socket?

    I assume you mean you just have the 12v accessory socket and no lighter part?

    Its the same place - I believe that to have the cigarette lighter the smoker's pack option would have needed to be specified.

    I assume that you would be able to get the full cigarette lighter assembly from VX, someone may well be able to give you the part number.

    Yep, as JuzzyD said, you can get the whole assembly from Vx. You can't just put the cig lighter bit into your 12V socket, as the socket you'll have is slightly narrower than the one that takes the cig lighter! - so you'll need the new socket and the cig lighter itself.

    so what usually goes here if the smokers pack was not specified? mayb a plastic bung or something? just the hole looks terrible.

    If its not got the smokers pack I think the socket is smaller, there should be a little flip cap over the hole
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    That's what I forgot to put on my last post - if it's a 12V socket, there should be a little plastic flap/cap over it. Maybe it got knocked off by the previous owner?
