Tried searching on the forum but couldn't find what I wanted (maybe searching the wrong way).
Can anyone help with what I have to look out for [screws & plastic clips] when removing the Giulietta glovebox & central side panels where the DNA selector / cigarette lighter is located.

I'm trying to wire into the cigarette lighter power for my "gps/screen for reversing camera" that I will be fitting into the centre dash storage compartment. Many thanks.:thinking:

You could actually get power from pin 16 on the ODB2 socket, located next to the steering column - its permanent +14V!

Thanks Buffen, but I would prefer it to be from the cigarette terminals - to be ON only in MAR key position for safety reasons.
Do not like constant live wires to the gps; even if only 12/14 V.
Besides I would like the correct way to dismantle the panels & glovebox without causing inadvertent damage.
BTW, is it easy to access the ODB2 socket without removing any panels?

Ah I see.
I have constant live power to my cradle!

ODB2 Socket:
Its very easy - at least in my car that's a LHD model - your car must have the steering wheel in the wrong side:bounce::bounce:
In my car is the connector is placed next to my left knee - under the plastic flap - next to the fuses!

Hi Grassy

I used the cigarette lighter socket with a connector as shown.
It has an on/off switch and a fuse, available from RS Australia $12.00
I ran the wire along to dash under silver side panel next to gear shift.
Then was easy to thread it up to top bin.

The obd port used to be located behind the trim panel by the fuse box, but I notice on my series 1 that it is now below that panel & even easier to access!

good to know Andypj - as you have the steering wheel on the same side as us downunder.
Had a look at mine (assembled May 2013), looks like its behind the panel - do you have to remove the glovebox as well?
