I got the trim and usb socket from Vauxhall. Then added the wires witch connect to the cig lighter. Think it was around £50

£50, was that including the part with the USB sockets ?

Seems unusually cheap for vauxhall :D

You’ll need a little black connector to go in the back of the port and little crocodile clips what you connect the wires to. Sorry can’t remember what there called.

I can probably just use som SIL or DIL sockets

Something like this in 1 or 2 rows i guess.

It just needs to fit snugly over the pins and then i can just heat-glue it to stay in place.

These are probably the crocodile ones you talked about and if it is, i am not going to use those, you risk making a bad connection with these which is not a good idea.

Can’t remember what there called. I got all the info off cornishtaz, he’s not on here anymore. The connectors where all metal, you have to clamp the wire to one side and then push the other on the pin. Sorry I’m not to clued up on it now coz it’s been a while since I done it. Sure there was a how to on here but couldn’t see it the other day. The black connector came in 2 parts and I just used 1 of them

Looking online I think I’ve found what I used. The black box connector on the right and them silver connectors. They only fit in certain holes in the box so look at the picture what I put up. Mine was a 12 port one I think
