    They are not cigarette lighters, they are electrical accessory oulet.

    Thought I'd mention that incase you were try to use it as a cigarette lighter.

    Depends on the age of the car, my front one is a cigarette lighter. I changed out the top lighter part for the facelift "flap" cover.

    In an 07 I think they would be Electrical Accessory.

    The fuse for that is in the fuse box on the passenger side on the end of the dashboard. You need to open the passenger door to see it. #22

    Not really because the front ones run off the dashboad fuse box and the one in the boot runs off the Fusebox(REC) in the boot

    According to my manual, the cigarette lighter is fuse number 22 on the interior fuse box (the one behind the panel on the end of the dashboard passenger side).

    There are three fuse boxes in the Vec C, one under the bonnet, one at the end of the dashboard and one in the boot.
