    Cigar lighters in Mk4 Astras.

    Hi,

    Bit of a basic question here. When I bought my mk4 SXi it didn't have a cigar lighter in it. I went out and *bought* one out of a poverty spec mk4 from a scrap yard but it doesn't fit, it's slightly too big. The only difference that I could see was that the donor car had a grey interior and mine is black but I can't see why that would mean the cigar lighters are different sizes.

    Can someone see on EPC or something if there are more than 1 cigar lighters for mk4 astras? Its not that important really, it just intrigued me why they would be different.

    Cheers,

    John.

    yeah, its just literally the actual lighter bit - the socket and everything is already there. I don't even use cigar lighters in cars but I just wanted the interior to look complete if you know what i mean. But the one I got only pushes in about a centimetre, like its too wide to fit in the socket.
