Instrument Panel Bulbs??

I removed the instrument cluster from my '88 635 today to upgrade the 3W bulbs to 5 W in order to make the panel brighter at night. I replaced the bulbs with Sylvania 2825 bulbs and they seem to work fine. I also wanted to replace the 4 smaller bulbs at the bottom of the panel, one for the light switch, one for the fog light switch and 2 for the bottom of the instrument panel. I bought Sylvania 74 bulbs as they looked just like the ones in my car but they would not work. They are 1.4W. If anyone knows which bulb will work please send me a PM or post it. Thanks.
