I just got a new (to me) Blaupunkt Frankfurt US in working order, the only issue is that the bulb is burned out. Does anyone know a good source to get these from? On the bulb says SPAHN 7V 0.1A and i have read that they are also used for various 60s and 70s Porsche dash lights and can be replaced with 12V bulbs. Thanks in advance!

should be able to either supply the bulb or tell you of a Blaupunkt service station that can...Or take the bulb to an electronics supply company and match it up.

.....or go to any 'old' established Mercedes-Benz dealer -

ask for a "peanut" bulb - same thing for early BECKER radios

Update:

Here is the response from Blaupunkt:

Thank you for your inquiry. We do not carry any parts for these radios

due to their age, we do not offer service, nor do we have a source to

recommend for parts. At this point you would be on your own to locate

parts that would be compatible with this unit. We apologize for the

inconvenience.

Does anybody have any other ideas, or know of anywhere i can get this?

Thanks!
