    You need to open the whole central console to replace it, also the bulb is not a normal bulb. I got it changed yesterday only.

    Mine had stopped working after i got ICE done,i got a replacement bulb,and the electrician just took out the power socket and installed the bulb.

    As it'll going to be a DIY.. so can any of you post a pictorial flow.. or atleast the procedure to open that center piece.. If not even pictorial,can anyone just confirm how many/where are the screws bolt and locks which are to be unscrewd or unlocked to open that piece of panel :anyone

  7. In my car this light is not working for more than a year. The TAFE guys followed by RDC guys, told me the whole set (Cigar lighter) has to be replaced, the bulb alone is not available. When are these service center guys (not only fiat) gonna learn honesty... Well I too will give a try for the DIY to change the buld.

    I did it some how ;)

    steps I followed..

    1. open the gear boot. you will find some foam padding inside u can your fingers to push it down and get access to the bulb



    2.now (this pic is just for an indicative purpose) now pull the black holder downwards . the bulb with come along with it. Its a T1.5 wadge based bulb 2. watts (same are used in the third break light too) 27230lg.jpg


    P.S.

    punto's OEM lighter bulb holder dose'nt have those red and black wire .. instead it has two naked metal connectors which are suppose to touch original lighters two poles to get the current.. for this you might have to rotate the whole orange bezel so the connectors come in touch to the lighters poles (this is what happened in my case , mu bulbs were fine just the connectors went out of place)
