Hi, I rebuild Dunhill cigarette lighters and I'm in need of replacement parts preferrably new. I understand there is a company in Jordan that makes replacement parts but I haven't been able to locate them.
Hi, Dan, I have 2 Dunhill ighters that work but they leak butane. Making them unfit for use. I would like to have them repaired/rebuilt. I believe they are 1960-70's vintage so, the lack of parts will definately be an issue here. Please advise. Thanks Glenn firstname.lastname@example.org

I've seen spare tanks come up on eBay from time to time, for $30 - $50. If not, picking up a beat-up Cartier on the cheap just to remove and use its tank is an idea. Cartier does not sell spare parts of any kind (other than flints), so if your lighter needs a new tank they will probably insist you get a complete maintenance service, which can cost up to $300.
Sounds like the valve that regulates the gas flow is sticking in the open position even when the lighter is not in use. Try spraying a light machine oil like WD40 on the gas jet aperture and any other moving part whilst your at it. Wipe excess oil from the lighter and leave for several minutes for the oil solvents to evaporate. Light the lighter a few times in rapid succession to enable the oil to penetrate. If the oils done it's job the gas should no longer leak.
I have a Dunhill Rollalite petro lighter and the wick is barely protruding out of the nipple / port. Everything thing I've read states to use tweezers to extend it but how is it done when there's nothing to crab? Are the wick replaceable and if so how is it done port how to extend it? Thanks
The reservoir tank can be the bane of existence for a Cartier lighter owner. Unlike most butane lighters which have gas tanks integral to the lighter, Cartier utilizes a user removable tank. Cartier only warrants the tank for two years. I've also seen tanks that say 12 months. New Cartiers come with one spare tank. I've seen spare tanks come up on eBay from time to time, for $30 - $50.

All rechargeable lighters have a refilling nozzle (usually at the bottom of lighter). All the good quality gas refill cans have the nozzle adapters inside sovering cup. Brake off the nozzle adapters off the cup and try to fit them onto lighters refilling nozzle. When found the best fit adapter, put it onto gas refill cans nozzle and holding the lighter and can upside down connect all nozzles together and push together. As these nozzles are made for mass production lighters, tey do not fit perfect and some gas leak will occure. Anyway- few seconds will be enough to refill any lighter. In case if your lighter do not refill by explained action, the refill nozzle in your lighter is damaged or faulty. Hope it does help.
