Spare Fuse Position in Fuse Box?

Hi All,

Quick question. I want to put an extra Cigar Socket in the Glovebox with an Illuminated switch so I can keep my Phone charging in there out of the way while driving.

I was going to just run a fused wire from the battery but I just wondered if there was a spare fuse position in the fuse box(es) that could be utilised for a more OEM job?

Thanks in advance,

Jon
