    Hi, I have had to replace a broken 7 pin N socket. There are 9 wires with no colors corrosponding to the standard wiring colours. Unfortunately the socket broke during removal so the pins came out of the molding. Does anyone know the colour coding used by Renault on their towbar sockets? Many...

    Hi there. I wanted to ask if anyone knows if there is any difference between the cigarette lighter and the 12v sockets in the car. I can charge my TomTom from the cigarette lighter but I can't from the 12 v socket. Thanks in advance

    Hi I have a Trafic 2017 1.6 sport nav and all i wish to do is enable the accesory socket in the load area. I have found the 2 wires and plug behind the vent type panels on the rear door pillar but they have no power. I looked at the fuse chart in the hand book and assumed that the use must be...

    I'm looking for a good (as in good enough) socket set for general car work.Turns out our Drapers aren't up to scratch- one of then cracked on a wheel nut at under 50lb.ft. I probably won't be taking any hub nuts off as if I never have to do one again it will be too often. Ta.

    I have a 15 plate Megan's and listen to a lot of my music through a pen drive plugged in to the sun socket and set to random play.

    I want to add a DAB player to my 2015 Megane stereo, but would prefer not to have to use the front AUX socket. Can one be added to the back and into the glovebox (as was the case on the 2010 Clio I had)

    Having just got a 2016 Trafic Sport 120, I find it only has one 12v accessory (cigarette lighter) socket in the cab, on the dash to the left of the centre console above the drop down cup holder, which is disappointing! I took off the cover for the "multimedia" connection point in the centre...

    Hi, I have an 06 Trafic minibus. The 12v socket in the rear is not working. I am sure it is probably just a fuse. Would anyone know which fuse it is. Thanks in advance, Dave

    Just removed the left wheel arc liner to do some work and found an electric socket hanging all loose, running from the same sleeve as the ABS sensor (see attached pics). It's all dirty and gunked up and with no mate in sight. Anyone happen to know what it is?
