Could be one of the data pins that was bent or broken.

4 pins, 2 for power 2 for data. If power pins are OK it will charge but if datapins are broken it will not connect

You do need to disassemble a bit of trim to be able to get the part it sits in, out of the car.

I took this part out to retrofit the powerflex bar and it took me about 1 hour to disassemble everything and put it back together.

I’ve replaced the socket today but there was no power to it although the aux connection works fine. The radio also works fine. I was unable to get the Apple CarPlay to work though. Tried a new genuine lead, no joy. It’s a June 2016 Reg car. New fuses had blown so I guess this supply will come via the radio? Maybe there is a fuse in the back of the radio module?Image

Maybe they were even so naughty as to put a fuse inside the HMI unit as well.

If this is the case, it will almost certainly be a surface mounted component which will require someone with skills to open up, measure and replace the fuse.
