Cigarette lighter fuse location?

Can anyone steer me the right way here? I cannot figure out what the symbol is on the chart, I have been googling and searching for an hour and give up.

Both of the outlets do not work, the wife dropped a dime in the one under the stereo, then tried to fish it out. I got it out finally but I believe we blew the fuse mucking around in it.

Look in your glove box, there is a hidden compartment on the upper right side towards the back. There are two 20 amp fuses (#'s 31 & 32).

Thanks! I will check it out. I am familiar with the glove box fuse panel, but I couldn't tell in the diagram what the fuse numbers were. The dealer said they will do it under warranty but I would prefer to save my time.

The fuse described for my 2006 is in the trunk. They apparently move them around based on the year of the car. As I recall the diagram depicts this fuse as two circles that intersect or something like that. My SA helped me figure it out over the phone and there are spare fuses in the trunk with the toolkit, etc....the lesson, keep dimes out of the cigarette lighter hole!

I think it is fuse # 87. Not 100% as I never had to change it, my dealer did it for me. The 2006 and up fuse diagram blows since it is all icons instead of words.
