12V Outlet Advice/Help

Hey yall,
New Rav4 owner here and new into anything car related. Was wondering if anyone here could help me out. For starters I have a 2006 Rav4.
My 12v outlet is wrecked and doesn't work. So being adventerous I took the panel off the dash and disconnected it. I now need to replace it.
I uploaded some pictures to give yall an idea of what Im looking at.

My issue is that I don't know where or how to get a new one or replace it. Everything I see online looks different from what I have. That being said, anyone know how to possibly wire in a different one? Also you'll notice in the picture theres expansion bays for more outlets. Id also like to add a duo USB plug on there and not sure how to do that either. Can anyone help???

Edit: I know it's not the fuse just an FYI. I checked and replaced it multiple times. The 12v outlet is itself broken

How would you recommend I tap into the wires? I wound up ordering an offbrand 12v outlet that I will just wire with an add a fuse and leave that old one dangling. It seemed like the easiest solution for someone that doesn't know a lot like me.
You tap the wires using these connectors. Video how to splice the wire. The power socket wires has two wires: white wire is positive (power) and the white with black stripe is negative (ground).
Awesome thanks for the suggestion! That wouldnt overload the wire if I had multiple things plugged in?
That circuit should handle up to 15 amp. For just usb cables that would be hard to overload.
