Although I am assured that I have a 12v socket on my 2000 4/4 I cannot find it. Is it me not looking properly or did some models not have one?

As Ken says, there should be a cigar lighter in the glove box. I replaced mine for a more secure type to power sat-nav.

I seem to recall that you are correct, the later cars have the socket under the dash.
When I had my first car, I had to be shown (by a Hopmog member) where the reset button for the display was, that was a little black button under the dash. They keep moving things, just like Wesley on Last of the Summer Wine.

I couldn't find the 12v socket in my 8....

Try looking under the dash, passenger side, towards the transmission tunnel. It possibly has a black rubberised cover on it.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, I've given up! I'm about to fit a marine socket on the rear bulkhead above the transmission tunnel. If I ever find the original I'll have 2 sockets!

I don't like the glovebox option as they are always live & I worry about a short.
