Need NLA Diode for the Gray Slant

An electrical diode has gone out on the gray ghost and the part appears NLA.
Do any of you guys know where I can get this part?
911 617 108 00

Thank you!

Is this the diode that connects the right parking lights, if so just go to radio shack and buy a diode and make one. Diode# 1N 4002. Cheap and easy.

I'm not sure what all it operates but the failure is preventing the alternator from charging the battery.

Take the one you have and remove the plastic casing. Inside you will see the diode with the type# stamped on it. Radio shack or any other electronics store should have it.

Not sure if I am supposed to cross post, so if I making a mistake, I apologize in advance and moderator can delete this. But, Dorkiphus has discussed this in the past and here is a link to the thread where some have fab'ed replacements from Radio Shack.

Thank you for the link! My alt. light does not go on at all. We robbed a diode from another 930 in the shop and all became well again. A fellow Pelicanhead had 2 of these diodes and has offered me one so I think we are good!

Thanks all, I will update the gray ghost restoration thread as soon as she is back home.

No but I can take a look at the bad one when we replace it and see what the numbers are.
