I'd check the relay, wiring, fuse and plugs for a dodgy connection.

Sounds like something has just come lose.

Go for a higher amperage circuit breaker and fit that. Should solve your problem. Its found screwed to your guard just outside the fuse box under the bonnet.

That wouldn't be the problem if they are also flickering. Once a fuse blows its blown.

Your asking for to much current (amps) from the high beam circuit. Either change your high beam globes to the standard 55w, or upgrade both the relay and the circuit breaker to a higher amperage unit.

Just get some narva +50% in the 50-55w range. There a great globe.
