Not really an issue just wondering really. The RHS (mpg) of the message center is reasonably bright but not as bright as the LHS, as I set off the RHS gets duller until it's unreadable. Next day it's reasonably bright again and so on.
I've no idea what or how this is illuminated but I want to find out what needs fixing if or when I remove the binnicle in the future.
TIA.

There's 3 bulbs behind it. Bulbs starting to blacken and dirt on the contacts where they go in is the usual reason for it being dull. They are RTC3635, 12V 1.2W capless push in types.

Get some spares as they are the same bulbs as used in the other warning lamps. Not only that but they sometimes stick in the holders and break.....

Is the time clock the same bulb type/wattage too? That's gone.

No, that is part number STC4412 and has the green cover over the bulb. Unfortunately it is NLA from JLR and the usual suspects although this place seems to have them https://www.businessmindltd.co.uk/view-product/land-rover-range-rover-1994-to-2001-bulb-holder-part-stc4412/3/7/213/24467
