Tiguan 4Motion (5N1) L4-2.0L Turbo (CCTA) (2009)
Cigarette Lighter: Description and Operation
Using force to remove cigarette lighter sockets without illumination can result in damage to the mounting sleeve retainers.
The puller T40148 can only be used to remove cigarette lighter sockets with illumination.
The puller is not capable of releasing the retainers on power sockets without illumination.
Power sockets without illumination usually cannot be removed without damage.
On some vehicle equipment levels, socket illumination is via Light Emitting Diode (LED) instead of a bulb. These LEDs are integrated with the
illumination housing and cannot be serviced or replaced separately.
Various versions of illumination housing with bulb exist. One version allows separate replacement of the illumination bulb, and another where the
bulb cannot be serviced or replaced separately. In this case, the entire illumination housing must be replaced.
There are different versions of the power outlet and cigarette lighter outlet due to different mounting locations and construction. The differences are
primarily In the length and type of electrical connectors. On power outlets and cigarette lighters with an electrical cable pig tail, additional work may
be necessary to access the connector.
