Hello Peeps!

Can anyone confirm if the 12V socket near the handbrake(not the rear one facing the passengers) on the Kuga has a socket cover?

It looks odd without one - plus when i checked another Kuga in the dealer garage - it didnt have one aswell.

I seem to remember having one (or not?).

If a cover is there - how/where would i get a replacement?

Thanks

it should have one, you'll probably be able to get a new one from the parts department. They are standard across all makes and models.

kuga59black Yes! Yes! Yes! can confirm same as WarKuga My Kuga has a 12V black socket cover. Have a good look on floor,and under/down side of seats, because mine is not that secure, it's aloose, and not a tight fit, so could easily of escaped. Bob.

Thanks all for confirming - so my suspicion was correct - it did have one!OK - looks like i had the mobile phone resting there which accidentally whacked this cover onto the floor somewhere - ill have a good hunt around. Its odd that all the other 12v covers are attached to the car - but this one is loose - a last minute cover up job i reckon! cheers again all for confirming!

Hi Kuga59black,
This one has a loose afterfit cover so they don't have to change the fitting if you spec the smoker pack. £25 for a lighter & cup, bargain, not.
Hope you find your missing one anyway.

Hi,
as Bobuptown states they are not a very tight fit but when I tried to remove the cover to the 12v socket in the boot it nearly ripped the trim out, I had to hold the trim with one hand and tug with the other (fnarr).



Anyway hope you find it.

probably best to pop to a ford dealer, and aquire one from one of the cars in the showroom! any car from the range should fit

which is probably why they are missing on most showroom cars in the first place

Reading the thread I'm wondering if there may be a couple of alternatives offered here. I can only describe mine as looking like a dummy plug which sits in the socket. The top has 12V embossed on it, but this is easily takenout but won't fall off if knocked which does seem much better. (totally different to the cover in the back)

Hi kuga59black,
You are not alone, I suspect that Ford have had them made with a genetic programme to disappear just to annoy us all. Mine did its now I'm here not I'm not trick about three weeks ago. Not found it yet.

Hello Bob,
Missed your daily contribution, how are you and Ann Robinson getting along . Bye the way did not use the trays at all in Scotland. I prayed for a rainy day to have my sandwich in the kuga, just did not happen.
