    Cigarette Lighter Sockets

    Hi All, Just recently my 12v cigarette lighter ports stopped working for charging my phone etc. I have an adaptor with 2x USB ports in it and it always worked fine and was plugged in to the rear 12v socket behind the handbrake etc. Last week it stopped working and i cant work out why. It doesnt work in either of the rear 2 ports or the front one in the ash tray. I have changed the fuses in the boot and yesterday tried the actual cigarette lighter in all 3 ports and it worked in all 3!? Does anyone know what might be going on here or any suggestions for what i should test / take apart etc? Is there some circuit board somewhere that detects the device load and automatically cuts the voltage to 5v for example? Many thanks Wayne

    Forge Boost Hose

    Thats what i would hope but the original one has the plastic end on the I/C and the metal end on the turbo. I will perhaps ring them to confirm...

    Forge Boost Hose

    Nice one, thanks !! I presume the metal end attaches to the compressor side and the jubilee clamps to the I/C.

    E60 530D...Pre 2K lag, any ideas?

    I see. I put new OEM seals in my turbo charge pipe (red one) but this did not cure my problem and i still got a film of oil on the outisde of the pipe after a short while. I have had numerous issues mostly relating to the bloody vacuum system but have sorted these now. The last thing i did was to remove the boost pipe and clean it - there was no oil on the top side but there was on the underside meaning i was still losing turbo pressure, So i applied a liberal coating of silicone grease to the seals at each end and the connections at the tubo and ic and reattached. Now, my car has no lag and boosts like it used to, with good pick up when push the throttle and also increased fuel economy. That was all i did - silicone grease! There is a note on a section in TIS that refers to using an 'anti friction' paste when replacing these pipes. I am not saying that this will fix your problem but might be worth a try and is easy and not expensive.
