    confused Cigar Lighter

    Greetings one and all, and a question for those in the know.

    I have a Vectra c on a 56 plate, the Design. Whoever owned the car previously had either lost or removed the cigar lighter from the rear of the center console (in the back for the passengers)

    After several unsuccessful purchases from eBay I am at a loss, even the people I have purchased from on eBay can't work out whythe ones I have purchased are just that little bit too big and wont fit into the lighter housing.

    Any ideas or am I going to have to my local dealer? If I can't get a lighter I would be happy to just get a cover cap like in the front... anyone know where I can get one of those as well?

    It's more likely a power socket than a ciggy lighter i think.
