Glovebox Flashlight

My car does not seem to have one, only a black rectangle where it should be.

In the manual it looks as if it should be standard. (no asterisk)

What would I need to add the flashlight?

I can't seem to find it on RealOEM. I can only find the LED flashlights and the rechargeable hand light. Have you seen it on there or have P/N's?

Was just a random link to highlight eBay as selling them... I'd mail you one from the uk for that price

That should be the socket already there, so you will just need the flashlight.
