What about those "grain of wheat" bulbs that model railroaders use?....I
have no idea what they are, but 12v is a distinct possibility.....

I don't have a part number or a spec -- these are light bulbs that go
inside switches in a 95 Volkswagen.  Dealers will sell a new switch
for $160; vwvortex will tell me "dude! that's a bummer!".

So if I'm looking for a little bulb, where should I go?

It's a very small bulb -- not an LED; two leads sticking out the
bottom, about 3/4" long.  It's soldered to the switch.

If I had to guess on specs, I'd say 12v/1w 12v/.5w; though it could
be even lower wattage.
