Hiya,
Are the bulbs low voltage halogen bulbs?

Thanks

Hi, they are 12v 20w

Hiya,
Thanks for that.

The most likely cause of the fault is the transformer has failed.

You could test it if you have, and can use, a multi meter.

Copy and paste the following into a new browser window. It will take you to a supplier of the Bosch part.

Personally, I'd be looking for a cheaper alternative transformer.
You can get them from around £8 on EBay.
Look at the old one and see what wattage it handles, obtain a replacement of equal or greater wattage.

Check it out, see what you find and get back to me if you need more help.

Hope this helps
Thanks

Thanks for this advice, I will check it out and replace with your recommended part and let you know.
Do I need to do anything else on here in the meantime ?
Thanks

Hiya,
No, you can either rate positively now, and keep your question open, or you can come back and post again once you've checked the transformer.
(The question will close after a few days).

Thanks
