No lights in Becker radio 81 300SD

Took my Becker radio out and did not see any way to replace a light bulb in the back. However I did find a metal tab on the back corner driver's side which looked like it should have an electric wire attached. Could not find a wire behind the radio. Could this be what causes my radio not to have lights? If not, where do I look? Otherwise radio works great.

Will try to attach picture showing tab.

You might try Becker Radio Web site, I have a couple of them will look tomorrow, I believe that the bulb is located behind face plate.

Becker emailed me back. Pretty curt: the lights go out; we sell the lights.

Does anyone know exactly what lights to purchase? Thought I could get them on the internet cheaper than Becker. Becker Europa Cassette radio in 81 300SD.

Thx

The lights are available at Kragen, Auto Zone, etc. It's behind the faceplate. Easy business to replace.
