Default Pilot lamp for Technics SE-A900S Vu meters

I just recived a Technics SE-A900S Power amp in good condition
But some of the pilot lamps for the vu meters are burnt out.
The part number from Panasonic are XAMR131, but now i have discovered that Panasonic has stopped selling these.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a suitable replacement?

Measuring the voltage over each lamp gives about 7-8volts (measured on an identical amp with ok lamps) and the distance betwin the holes on the print are 24mm

It's not an exact like for like replacement, but in the past I've fixed other vu meters by embossing a white LEDs in some white sealant above or either side of the plastic case.

The trade off is the light is not so warm as with a lamp, but you'll never have to replace it again.

Various suppliers carry "meter lamps." small glass tubes with axial leads. I keep them onhand in three voltages.

Default Try a model railroad shop

They have 12 volt leaded bulbs called grain of wheat bulbs. Will work if you need 12v bulb. Might have other voltages too.
