cigarette lighter fuse replacement

my cigarette fuse has been blown for a couple of years now lol and i never got around to replacing it. so i'll be driving to MPACT East 2017 from Ohio to PA so i want to be able to charge my phone which i will be using the GPS to get there. i've heard it's under the glove box and i found this schematic and want to confirm if fuse #54 or #65 is the one where the cup holders is? or is it in the trunk since they list multiple fuses for the cigarette lighter? also, what size amps is it and if it's the normal size fuse or the smaller one's? any tips or tricks? if anyone has done there's please chime in i would really appreciate it! thanks!

You may have spare fuse in the fuse box. I replaced it while ago. Can't remember.

It's in the glovebox, had to replace mine about a year ago. Use needle nose pliers to get it out, much quicker.

just an update on this! so it is a 20 amp fuse and i had no idea there was a cover covering the fuses in the glove box so i'm looking around going WTF? where is the fuse panel lol as i'm looking at the picture posted above! anyways i figured it out and boy what a pain it was getting the fuse out! even the damn fuse remover that came with the fuse kit didn't work. the fuses are soooo tight together you couldn't get them to separate for the tool to grab. even when i used a needle nose. i ended up just reaching in there and pulling with my finger nails. anyway, just thought i'd let everyone know how it went
