Melted one will definitely need replacing,
Go ask VW for a print out relating to your VIN number as Golfsmith suggested.
I've seen mine and a friends card on an 08 Polo 1.4 and they are totally different.

Thanx guys! Cant find any fuse layout in the manual.

See below. this was on the panel that I took off. It doesn't show the cigarette number.

BINGO! The Fuse Card

Take the card out and check on the back, It has the second half of your fuse box.
Can’t remember what the picture for the lighter is but I’m pretty sure it's easily noticeable when you do find it.
I replaced my lighter fuse in 2009 so kind of hard remembering which one.
