I had the same problem on my '98 Espace recently and found that, in addition to some blown bulbs, there was a hairline crack in a track on the flexible circuit board to the right hand set of bulbs - they were going intermittently faint. Careful work with a soldering iron sorted that out, but not before discovering the fairl low melting point of the plastic circuit material!

The correct 2.2 watt bulbs are hard to find, but I didn't fancy causing more problems by using a set of 3W bulbs and overloading the brightness control electronics.

Good luck.
