already answered on the other post simple fix take the lkighter out the socket look inside youll see two metal clips that hold the lighter in use something suitable not metal to slightly bend them in the way not into the barrell but so that they are pushed further open then try if they are too tight either the lighter pops out onto the floor or it sticks till the fuse pops

Nice1 artscot worked like a treat now it holds in when its hot enough. Fuse seems to have held so far well see how long for. Many thanks
