My Cigarette lighter in my 2004 1.9JTD Multiwagon kept melting the fuse so there was a short somewhere. I also wanted to repair the orange ring around it which no longer illuminated. Ive also shown where i added a belkin USB charger to the useless coin holder as discovered on a previous thread.
Firstly remove the 2 side panels at the footwell - console sides. Drivers side just need a bit of elbow grease to yoink it off, on the passenger side i think there is also a single screw up into the dash, then give it a yoink... i never took any pics of that bit sorry!
Also grab the edges of the leather gaitors at the handbrake and gearstick and unclip them from the console. use a flat head screwdriver to assist if required.
