Lightbulb Adman

Hi. I have recently bought a 1999 Mk1 1.6e Megane Coupe.
All the indicators flash to quickly even the hazards. I have also noticed the left rear light flashes the same time as the indicator. All the bulbs are working. Went to the scrap yard and got two rear sections with the three bulbs in. changed them over and now the rear nearside light doesn't work and all the indicators are flashing again to quickly. The problem seems to be the nearside rear. It appears to be earthed correctly. Is it correct that this model does not have a relay??? Please help

The symptoms do lead to an earthing problem, I would check the earth strap from the battery to the car body and make sure that all of the bulb connectors are clean and shiny.
