Look in the glovebox. If you see a light, you can poke around to figure out how to access the socket. You may see provisions for a light, such as a cover of some sort, but no light.

    Thank you for responding. I shall try this when the wind has died down (car is outside). I wonder if it is possible that this model/year does not even have such a thing, although find that odd, even on such an old car.

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...
