Hi All,

Is the cigarette light unit easy to replace? The current one is caked with tobacco from the previous owner and I would like to replace it.

Thanks

if you pop the gear gaiter and surround you can just about reach to push it out. then a replacement can be fiited. would be easy to remove the rear centre console though (4 screws).

the plug on the end of the wiring would fit on this
12v Illuminated Car Cigarette Lighter & Accessory Universal Socket Power Blue | eBay

ie, the connections are 1 horizontal to 1 vertical.

there are different sizes of socket, i had to bore mine out a bit because i bought a 27mm, i would assume the stock size is the 22mm type.

the socket linked above is illuminated, if you want that to work you will need to run a feed to the bulb, i linked mine to the cigar lighter feed but this means its illuminated when the ignition is on and not just when the lights are on.
