Where is the 12V fuse?

My Tesla Model S 2016 October Facelift Model has lost 12V power.
I opened the frunk, remover trim covers and opened the fuse box.

The fuse box cover says refer to manual, however nothing in the manual about fuses.

The Internet has different fuse boxes that don’t correlate to mine.

Please see photos and thanks for any help.

Google found this: BUT THE INFO IS WRONG FOR 2016 MODEL S

Disregard THIS post and refer to my following post...

Cigar lighter (power outlet) fuses in the Tesla Model S are the fuses:
#35 (12V power socket)
and #58 (2015-2016: 12V Outlet) in the Fuse box №2.

My previous post has no information that matches your photos.

Try this tmc thread: Fuse Box Diagrams - Model S. - 12 V Center Console Outlet Fuse Location

And download the referenced pdf file: Fuse Box.pdf

You are looking in the frunk and have found the wrong fuse box.
You need to look for the fuse box behind the foot well kick plate. Probably drivers side.
Check fuse F207
Thanks, I checked with the Service Centre, but they only knew of the fuse box under the frunk, as per my photo attachments.
Funnily enough, after 3 days at the Service Centre to collect parts, now the cigarette lighter and centre USB power is gone.
Just 1 USB power on the left remaining to power my phone.
I found out the USB cable was bumped behind the MCU, so I wonder if the cigarette lighter wire has been bumped?

I used a multimetre and checked every fuse under the frunk and all had power.

Thanks, but all the fuse diagrams on the Internet and Stromi's are not like my fuse box. As per my 2 original photos.
I have added more photos here with closer images.
