Lightbulb Rear Dome Light Stays On

Hello Source members!

Is there a part for the rear door (95 Station Wagon) that triggers the rear dome light to extinguish when you close the rear door? I have two small screw holes that appear to be able to hold a striker plate on the door edge which lines up with the rear dome light button to make that button depress and extinguish the rear dome light. The button doesn't strike anything but air when the door closes, thus the light remains on. I could manufacture my own part, I guess, but I'm nit-picky about small things as such.

I already stumped Rovers North because I lacked a part number, so......

Thanks!
Brian

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Uh, yeah I figured that one out already, but thanks.

My point WAS the door closing doesn't strike the rear dome light button. Is there a plate on the door that is supposed to make contact with the button to shut the light off automatically? I have two empty screw holes that I imagine hold a striker plate or something to contact the button when the rear door is closed. Damn! wish I had a digital camera. I'd show you all what I mean.

Can anyone with a station wagon look at their rear door and see? All the other D90's I know have soft tops.
