Hi all,

I have just bought a C3 1.6 sx automatic (facelift) reg 59. I found a problem with the lighter socket and I think it is related to a fuse. I have tried to find the fuse layout (I think the one I need is in the glovebox) but none of them match with mine. Mine is a 12 bay fuse. I don´t have the owners manual so I´m a bit lost.
Could anybody lend me a helping hand please?
Thank you in advance

Regards

Hi there harry85

I found this topic from the past posts;
Citroen C3 electric window fuse
acstrath wrote:Surprise, surprise, I have found another fusebox near the first one under the steering wheel ( My car has the wheel on the left side - left hand drive ). The fusebox is well hidden below the one I already had found. Had to jam myself almost upside down between the wheel and seat to see it.

Which may help you locate the correct fuse box for the cigarette lighter fuse.

Thank you for the help.
Finally I found it. I though it was on the fuse box inside the glovebox but this one is under the glove box.

Finally problem sorted :)
