    My A6 driver side indicator fades away ? Why ?

    Hi all
    I have a question if you all dont mind..

    I have a 1999 A6 and the right side indicators do not illuminate properly. And sometimes they dont even work!. I get sworn at by some drivers since they think I am not indicating when turning!!..lol

    When they do not work, the clicking sound of the indicators is fast and flash on/off fast. That has happened a few times.

    But most times they are just so dim compared to the other side.. and barely light up

    I changed the bulb, but that didnt solve it.

    Is it a relay problem. If so, how/where do I go about changing it..

    Many thanks all of you
    Cheers

    Roy
