My daughter bought a Dispatch van over the weekend to replace a much-loved Berlingo now beyond economic repair. Stupid question, but four of us were looking at it yesterday and can't find where the cigarette lighter is located, presumably on the dashboard. Was there an option for no lighter socket when this was new? Guidance please!

When I central lock my doors why does my passenger side indicator stay lit up? That's my first question and my second question is, as I'm driving I have to hold the gear stick in when I'm in 3rd or 5th gear, it keeps jumping out when I'm either going down a hill or at speed on the motorway, do I need a new gearbox?

My Citroen Dispatch 1.6 hdi has an indicator stalk fault, when I touch it the headlights come on. If I touch it at the base the lights won`t come on, I have found that if you touch the very tip and gently move it about the lights come on. I wondered if it is possible to take off the first part of the stalk because I think that is where the problem lies? Thank you
