If it's an original Renault part, marketed as an optional accessory, there should be a wiring loom for it already in the car.
If you bought it from a Renault dealer, they would know whether it's got a loom or not, based on year.

If it's only marketed as a replacement part, and not as an optional accessory for retrofitting, there are slightly higher chances of a loom not being present.

A Scenic owner who has this accessory installed would be able to provide a better answer than me as to where the wiring loom should be coming out,
but I have a couple of educated guesses:
1) Beneath the floor carpeting under the center passenger seat, i.e. underneath where the manual says the socket should be installed.
2) Hanging down from underneath the center seat cushion.

Hi... I presume youve got some sort of plastic cover below the center rear seat? Remove this and if you put your hand inside you should feel a loom with your fingertips. The plugs have yellow and black wires on them. Im not saying youve got them but i have the 12 accessory fitted and thats what ive found with mine.

Hope it helps :d

It should be cheap! I'm quite surprised that the Scenic 2, being a family car, doesn't come with extra sockets as standard. The Lag 2 has the usual dash-mounted socket, one in the front storage box, one at the back of the centre console for rear seat passengers, and one in the boot... Although I note it only has one cupholder in the front, but two in the back :p

In my Laguna, I'm planning on replacing the three that are accessible from inside the cabin (center console storage box, center console rear, ashtray) with USB ports
that are capable of charging an iPad (5V, 2.1A) each.

That way, you can just plug in your iPad, or any phone or music player that charges over USB, and hey presto!
No need to faff about looking for that cigarette charger you'll never use anyway.

The one in the boot will remain untouched, as it'll be used for a cooling box or sumth.

Hi I what happened did you install it? What is this codes represent exactly? Does it include the base plate too?
There is only a hollow there between seats so I need a plastic base to connnect and fix the sockets..
Did it come with that base ?
Thanks
