Cig Lighter too big...

It's never been a problem, but the cigarette lighter in my '97 NAS D90 is too large to accomodate standard chargers/adaptors for phones/etc. Anyone know if there's an adaptor or replacement part available? Thanks.

Euro Marlboros are bigger than American Marlboros.

Cell phones used to come with power outlet adapter. Nothing more than a sleeve to hold the plug correctly.

I think its the same part on a disco. NAPA has an almost drop in replacement that is normal size. NAPA brand part number 782-1600. It requires some wiring mods to hook up the positive post. Its a screw instead of a push on connector, but you can make a crude adapter with a short section of wire and the right terminals to avoid butchering the stock harness.


None of my other british cars use the big size, I've only seen it on rovers.
