2015 F55 Cigarette Lighter socket

Hi All,
Few weeks ago when I pulled my cigarette lighter charger, the socket came with it and when I put it back my cigarette lighter is not working anymore. How do I access the connection of the cigarette lighter? Please help... :-( Thanks

Its a PIA! I installed the Cravenspeed Hidden Power adaptor - https://www.cravenspeed.com/hidden-power-adapter/ and had to almost get on my head to get the thing out.

I just looked and that is the only part that isn't in their install section. Reach out to them to see if they can give you the instructions.

I did contacted the dealer and ask for a diagram but he's not very helpful at all. In short he don't want to do it, send me a diagram.

Nice. Yeah, send a message to CravenSpeed. He's on here too.

Cool guy, will be very helpful.

Here is a link to the install on my car. There are pictures at least so you can get an idea - https://myredmini.com/cravenspeed-hidden-power-adapter/

I attempted to check my fuse but, I thought the fuse box is located at the passenger side wall. Where is the fuse box located at for 2015 Hardtop 4 doors (F55)? I'm very frustrated for my non working cigarette lighter problem. Thanks in advance.
