It looks as though some models of the 2014 W204/C204 are fitted with a rear ashtray with 12v socket. This would be useful for me to provide the kids with a USB charging point in the back.
Is it possible to find and fit an aftermarket part? I've seen some on ebay but they are from the US and...
How safe is it to share the cig lighters power with my car stereo 12v ignition power without an additional fuse.

There's the light switch, and it's accessible, but is it a good idea to tap into the wires?
Any help or advice offered will be greatly appreciated :)
Found this on another forum (Land Rover) but thought it may be handy for some of the DIY guys here, or even those with "compromised" drain plugs. :)

Trying to fit a dashcam to the new motor. Want to wire it to the passenger fuse panel 301-341. Looked at the fuse map in the fuse box and there is a fuse for the Panoramic Roof. This must be switched 12v because the sunroof won't open if the egnition is off. But there is no fuse in the slot...
I've been having on and off recently in the hot weather misfiring that won't go away.
When its cold, say in the late evening the car runs as it should. During the day when its much warmer the car once its up to temp is misfiring and stalling like crazy.
I've put new Bosch HT leads...

Eventually found this in passenger footwell (no cigarette lighter) and discovered that it does not work - due in no small part to not being connected and in bits! LOL
So, anybody know the part number for a new socket please? Doubtless, MB charge an arm and a leg so is there an OEM part I...
Hey guys, just a quick question to see if the c class coupe has more than the one charging point other than the front ashtray? My old Scirocco had one in the boot which I used a fair bit.
Looking around this car, I can't seem to find one although I've read online there should be one in the...
Can anyone tell me if/where there is an un-switched permanent power source in the front of a late 2005, early 2006 R230 SL350? This is needed for a Dension installation.

Hi. Today I needed to find a permanent 12v feed for an accessory in my car. So I stripped everything out that I needed to in order to remove the head unit. Using my multimeter, I found a 12v feed on the back which was red with a stripe. Used it and put everything back together again. However, it...
