MK2.5 power socket under armrest faulty?


Recommended Posts

So I've gone to plug my phone charger into the 12v 10amp power outlet that is under my central armrest, next to the usb socket. But there is alot of movement when the the charger is plugged in, tried a few others all the same, it does look worn, the socket, so my question is if I change the socket is it just a normal cig socket or is it a special socket since it says it's a power outlet 12v 10amp on the cover?

Standard Ford socket with a flip cap collar.
To access the socket wiring remove the 2 screws holding the panel at the rear of the console and lift up and back.
The wiring block just pulls off.
Push the socket out of it's collar or use screwdrivers to lever between the collar and the socket rim.

The 10A label is to advise you not to overload the socket as it's tucked away in a place where fire could occur.
A lighter insert is not to be used there because of the higher current draw needed to heat it up.
