    Have you tried swapping the bulbs (from left to right) and put the replacement in the left? Could be worth a try to see if it's the quality of the bulbs?

    Bump!

    I had something similar.

    My right side brake bulb used to last around 2 months before blowing, yet the left was fine?
    I replaced both for some high quality ones. Its been 6 months and both seem ok !!
