Exclamation Front cigarette lighter not working

Hi All
My Front cigarette lighter isn't working, which is a pain as I need to use it for phone charging/ipod.
I've looked online, and there are a few suggestions with pics, and the fuse diagrams shown have a picture of a "cigarette" so easily identifiable; mine however, has not picture of a cigarette, so I'm at a loss as to what fuse im looking for to check, and replace if needed. Any advice please??

**** I have located a previous thread which mentioned could be F44 fuse; I have replaced this and still nothing :-(
Here's a pic of mine

I have exactly the same problem, I've checked fuse #44 as directed by various other sites etc and nothing, check inside the connector as well and nothing I can which would stop it from working, anyone any ideas ?

I too have this exact same set up on my 2012 Mini Cooper...need to positively identify the lighter/cigarette fuse. The manual is of no help whatsoever.

my cigarette lighter was not working and fuse cover was the same as above. When I checked my fuse panel I noticed I was missing fuse 38 and installed a 15amp fuse in and my cigarette lighter began working. I also noticed I had a 15amp fuse in spot F37 that shows its unused on the fuse cover and pulled it to check the fuse it was good maybe been a bad connection there before pulling fuse and reinstalling it. I did that before putting a fuse in F38 Hope this help. You can tell if a fuse goes some place if it has the holder in both slots for the fuse blade.
