thats the only way you can get new bulbs,
just change them to LED's, its the simplest thing you can do and there is a step by step guide here:

just use white LED's if you dont want them to be coloured!

edit: photo of mine, done with 1800mcd LED's iirc, way WAY brighter at night time

the only way you can get the bulbs is by buying the entire switch, i had a look around and they werent sold seperatly. the LED mod is easy as, costs about $1.50 each for an led and 40 cents for 8 resistors, the leds run cooler and last longer than the bulbs in there aswell.
