does anyome know how to remove the cigerete lighter to replace the light behind it.
i would like to know this for other reasons..
me too richie
power supply by any chance? i want to be able to run a light or two into the boot and or sat nav...
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!
isnt lit in mine 54 cupra
anyway of gettin to the wires for the sig lighter insted then?
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.
and where did you get that from?
I have no idea what you mean.
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
the cutting from the workshop manual and not you
rite enough it didn't light up when i bought it, but i just thought that tha bulb had gone, and no one bothered replacing it.
Cheers for the info, greatly appreciated.
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
If you could find one Nath that would be great I am thinking about doing the same
Just sharing information.
As it happens it was a little something off e-bay.
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?
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?
Nice one, help much appreciated.
Think I'm off to the dealers in the next couple of days.
Will let you know how I get on.
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
also done the glove box but left the boot as it was
