Has anyone had any experience (DIY or Dealer) of changing the USB socket under the armrest? Mine has either broken or has something wedged in the bottom - a usb stick won't go in far enough to register properly. It goes down far enough to get an intermittent connection, but 'intermittent' may as well be not at all!

Also.. I saw a comment on here somewhere about there being TWO usb ports on a Mk2 (mines a Titanium) - where is the second one or was the poster referring to usb 2.0 or just plain wrong?

I assume from yours being a '2018' that it's a Mk3? There's definitely not 2 side by side on my Mk2 .. I'd have noticed that!

No, it a facelift Mk2 (a Mk2.5 if you like) the Mk3 is the new (2020) model.

Guess they must have changed it for the Mk2.5

If you have Sync 1, then you only have 1 USB socket. Sync 2 has 2 USB & the SD card slot, Sync 3 has mostly 2 USB.

Sounds like you have Sync 1, the USB socket is part of the console loom, it doesn't have a plug on it so you will need to change the whole loom. It connects to the main dash loom at the front of the drivers side footwell, straight down from the heater controls.

You will need to remove the gearstick surround, the side panel and the centre part of the console including the cup holders to get the loom out.

Well that's not going to happen, so I'll carry on burning MP3s to CDs! Cheers for the info - confirms what I have come to expect. I think I'll stick to 10 minute jobs, like fitting the smoked lens progressive LED repeater indicators on the mirrors - they do look good too.
