    Hi Bill

    We swapped ours for LED's, much brighter, far less power

    I use Homewatt for my LED bulbs 240V and 12V but there are loads of options

    Hi David, thanks for this, will have a look at their website and see what the equivalent LED one is. I think it must have been the original bulb, it broke when I removed it.......will let you know how I get on.

    I replaced ours with a LED as well.

    Ours is a G4 bulb. The design of the fitting will dictate whether you need a side pin or back pin LED.

    Also replaced ours with LED, however you may need to swap the supply wires over because LEDs are polarity sensitive, unlike the standard bulbs, try it first you have a 50/50 chance. (y)
