Any common problems? Lasted 2weeks then mate charged his phone and after 20mins blew. Bought the car and the cigarette lighter was unplugged and the fuse was blown, plugged it back in and changed the fuse with no problems until now

Is it more likely to be the wiring or the cigarette socket itself?

Sounds like there is a short in the socket itself hence why it was previously unplugged. Get a replacement from a scrappy as they will be the same in all 306's


Although it's no longer available new, it's worth trying to get hold of a good example second-hand. As GTi's get tubbier and cooler, it's nice to remind yourself of why insurance companies hate hot-hatches so much.-Top Gear on the 6 Apr '01. Black 6
