1995 Nissan Pathfinder Q&A

1995 Nissan Pathfinder Question: I purchased a cigarette lighter assembly kit it is too small to fit what to do?

This lighter kit has the wire, I need to make it fit into the existing hole, -
Answer 1
Return it and get one that fits the hole. If not we can't see what you have to work with, take it to someone qualified to instruct you. -
Comment 1
I would and I contacted the person I ordered it from and was told it is a universal part, and I should get an adapter for a local store. -
Comment 2
That's hard for me to say when I can't see it. In electrical wiring, sometimes we need to put a connector into a junction box with a bigger hole than the connector. They make bushings to fit them so we can use that connector in that hole. If you're not understanding what I'm saying, go to an electrical store and ask them to show you what I'm saying. Maybe that will give you an idea of how to fix your project. -

Yes I understand, the existing hole in the dashboard is too big to fit the new lighter, I was told the lighter is a universal part, and modifications would have to be made. I will try the electronics store for the bushings, thanks for the input -
