I had this problem as well. Start by removing the small plastic plate by the emergency brake (Pull the brake up). It just pops off, Then remove the left side of the middle console that includes the cup holders and ash tray. It will loosen and you will have to manuever it to take it completely out - turn it sidways to get it out from the shifter, You will need to do this to get to the two screws holding in the front panel where the cigarette lighter is at. Using a phillips screw driver, unscrew the two screws at the very botton of the panel near where it would meet the center console. These screws are hard to get to but can be done. Once you have removed the screws, starting at the bottom, begin to remove the panel slowly as the wiring will still be attached. Unclip the emergency blinked power clip. The cigarette will have two plus that will clip off. The wiring will still be harnessed to the panel, By using a flat screw driver, you can push in the plug clips from the opposite side and the wiring plug will come out. Now you have the panel completely out. Position the cigarette holder in, the metal clip with the little handle goes to the rioght hand side in between the two plastic plugs.holding this all together, there should be a metal ring that will screw back in to hold the cigarette holder in place. once this is secure, plug in the three wiring clips and then plug in the wiring harness once you have the panel positioned to put this back in. once your wiring is back in re-mount the panel and put the two screws back in. Put in the center console molding and then put in the small molding by the parking brake.

I am a woman with no mechanical experience , so goes to show you that this is possible. Time it took me to repair - 30 mins including figuring out the panel screws etc.

    no need to take the console apart, the panel that the lighter is on just pulls straight out, it has clips holding it in

Need location of fuse box containing cigarette lighter fuse


On some vehicles the cigarette lighter fuse is attached to the cigarette lighter assembly itself. Check if you can gently prise the cigarette lighter assembly out of its location in the dashboard, or remove any panel that may allow access to the rear of the cigarette lighter and look for the fuse (it may be an in-line one in the power lead to the cigarette lighter or it may be physically attached to the cigarette lighter itself). Failing that, the fusebox is normally under the dashboard on the driver side, but some fuseboxes can be found under the dashboard on the passenger side. There should be a diagram under the fusebox cover that shows what circuits each fuse protects. If a fuse has blown ensure that another of the same type and value is used to replace it.

How do i change 12v power / cigarette lighter! in a Peugoet 206


The cigarette lighter is connected to a harness that's being the unit. You need to most likely remove the panel that the cigarette lighter is attached to in order to remove the lighter unit out. Once the unit is out, disconnect the wiring harness to exchange it. I don't know how exactly your lighter will come out

Cigarette lighter


There should be a pair of thin metal tabs along the side of the body of the lighter housing. These need to be gently pulled away so that they click underneath the console when inserted.
