  • Where is the 12v fuse on a 3rd gen surf??

    I've blown the fuse on my cigarette lighter on a 1996 surf 3.0. I cannot for the life of me find the fuse, where is it located?
    Doesn't appear to be under the bonnet or behind the little fuse box by the drivers knee.
    Thanks!

    I believe all Jap cigarette lighters are of a different construction of those replacement ones in accessory shops such a Halfrauds.
    I fixed my cigarette lighter (fuse was not blown) last summer on my 2nd gen & later on in the year on the Mitsy Delicia ( fuse not blown also) the same way as the Surf one. I found the info on the net, U tube I believe but can't find the link so help ya self in searching for it ....
    F.Y.I I don't advocate this procedure if ya not confident in doing so or feel it unsafe ....

    However this is what I did basically remove the cigarette lighter from its fitment location, once removed if ya look at the back end of the lighter you'll see a tiddy little nut with a contact tab underneath & (an L shaped 90 degree piece of fused wire) located on another tab holding the hole lot together. You need to remove the two thin plastic isolator washers n fix it back together n "Bobs ya Grandad"
    Good Luck
