Hello! So I was incredibly dumb and bought a very cheap Chinese 12V-to-USB adapter. And of course my front lighter socket fried itself instantly. I am not 100% sure, but I think it also killed my under-the-armrest (the cooled storage space) power socket (labelled "12V"). The one in the rear is 100% fine.
I have a 2013 V6 TDI, German model.
I found this diagram

We have "F38 - Cigarette lighter", "F39 - Auxiliary power sockets", "F40 - Auxiliary power socket". I'm not very experienced, and I barely passed my Electrotechnics exam this winter. Can someone please give me some instructions? The only thing I can think of is pulling these 3 out and looking at them.

Figured it out. The hardest part was opening the fuse box.
It's on the right side of the dashboard, behind the passenger door. The panel that covers the fuse box has a small notch at the bottom, a bit hard to notice. I inserted my house keys there and eventually it popped open. It was a blue 15A fuse for both front power sockets.
