    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?

    what do you think too much power blowing the bulbs , i put a meter on the battery a while ago and its charging at 14.2v is that too high , had a problem with the rear side lights for a while used to be both sides but now just the one I'm thinking it could be the bulbs I'm using are cheap so can't take the power its getting

    Bump!

    I am suffering from this too, and it is painfully annoying! Any advice?

    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 !!
