Glovebox Torch

Hi
Im trying to get hold of a glovebox torch for my 525 E34 and was wondering if a later model black torch would fit as I currently only have the white version which is unrepairable.
Any ideas?
Much Appreciated

Each year they changed things a little. For same make and model it appears at least 3 year intervals on interior parts adaptability

So I'd have to get one from a similar model of roughly the same age. I hear that the old white torches are rare is there any kind of repair kit. Could I use the black e39 style torch and swap internal parts over?
Many thanks

White torch not rare, just pricey. Repairs have been done with LEDs etc. Black unit does not fit.
