    To the best of my knowledge the whole centre console has to come out.

    As a point of interest was it ever lit in the first place?
    I've had the console out in my 06 car and a light was never fitted!

    Regards Guy.

    Having checked I'm certain the centre console does come out.
    The bulb holder makes the lighter bigger underneath the trim and thus it has to come out from behind
    Hope this diagram helps.
    It's a bit fiddly but take your time and it does come out without damage.

    cigarette socket is not illuminated on the mk4 I don't think

    I have illuminated mine by fitting a mk3 lighter socket from the dealers (the illuminated ring is the correct colour and has a bulb in it already)and running a wire from the traction control button illumination

    oh and BTW the console does not need to come out

    put your finger in the lighter socket, bend your finger and pull it out, when fitting the illuminated one just insert it bulb first (it does fit fine)


    I may have a pic

    Surely the console has to come out to fit a new lighter because of the lack of wiring?
    If you could give a bit more info it would be much appreciated mate.
    Is the light on all the time or does it come on when the lights are switched on?

    Regards Guy.

    here goes

    like many others my lighter socket did not illuminate don't think any mk4's do
    I bought a mk3 ibiza illuminated one from the stealers for about £5 so that the red illumination is the correct colour

    stick your finger into the lighter socket and bend/hook your finger then pull and the old lighter socket comes out with wires attached by spade connectors

    plug the spade connectors onto the new mk3 lighter socket, then find the wire that illuminates the traction controll button lamp (this is ignition switched and can be seen through the hole where your lighter socket was) and connect a new wire to this and connect it to the mk3 lighter socket illumination bulb

    the mk3 lighter socket will insert into the hole where the original one was but it will need to be carfully inserted by inserting/clipping in the illuminating ring first then inserting/clipping the lighter socket into that

    does that help?

    I did this mod bloody ages ago but when I posted up about it I got no interest so I thought I must be odd in wanting it to be illuminated :shrug:

    also done the glove box but left the boot as it was
