  • Extremely odd spare part

    Hi all,

    Just looking for advice on a somewhat odd subject:
    A new red lightbulb “exterior” for my Citation fourteen (see picture)

    I “landed” that very rare (in Sweden) unit a while ago on Swedish Ebay but the little red piece of plastic on the “on-bulb” is missing.

    I found an ugly substitute in a car-accessory firm, will do for now but I would like to get a “original” one, if possible.

    My question is if anyone has an idea on where to get a new/old one?
    (There is even hard to get hold of a working email-address to H/K USA from Sweden…)

    Best regards//lasse

    Do you mean the hole to the right of the red light on the CD player?

    No idea where to get one, but if you know someone who makes plastic model aircraft, they might be able to carve one for you from that transparent plastic use in cheap cigarette lighters. I've made aircraft landing lights out of the stuff.

      Hey Lasse,

      I know you're just looking for the bulb cover, but you may have better luck looking for an entire fascia panel with that piece in place. Here's one currently listed on Ebay (US). I know it's an absurd cost for a simple plastic part...



      This seller seems to have a number of Citation 14 buttons and parts listed and might be able to help source a replacement:



      Apologies if you've already been down this particular rabbit hole.

      Following on Geoff's suggestion, you might also see if someone in your area could 3d print a replacement using translucent filament.

      Good luck,
      Squib

        Hi,

        Strange!!

        The links to Ebay-sites have been removed.

        Wonder why (Who is TroyH??)

          Troy H is "super moderator". He removes links PETT finds objectionable, among other duties.

        My apologies. I was apparently wrong to assume *bay links to products PE doesn't sell were appropriate. Lasse - try searching that other place for a seller going by joeoldaudio.

          I was surprised. i wouldn't think a link to used junk would be a problem.

        Hello,
        Sorry for the mistake! Ebay carries competing products and links to competitors are prohibited. In this case, since they weren't to competing products, I should have left them. I'm very sorry for this!!

          Hi,

          PE irritation is nothing compared to Ebay´s when I tried to talk to joeoldaudio- I am permanently banned from that site now !

            Look at the indicator lamps from Bulgin at Digikey or some other electronics parts houses. There are some that look much like the original...
