Quick flashing blinker...bulb OK

So here is my issue, a few months ago...we'll say back in March I was hunting and noticed by left blinker going very fast. Got out to check and the rear driver side was out. Well about 2-3 miles later it stopped blinking fast and the bulb was working. I didn't think much of it.

So now June comes along and it happens again. I check the bulb and it looked OK so I took it out of the socket and reset it and it worked fine....until this week. Same thing, I just took the bulb out and reseated it and it worked. Unfortunately I'm stuck in Germany so I have to do all maintenance myself and they take burnt out lights more seriously here than in the states. Anyone got any suggestions on what to look for on fixing this? Last thing I need is for it to suddenly go out and the po-po right behind me.

Check all your connections for corrosion. It'll make the bulbs flash quickly too!

May need to do that. Forgot to mention when I take the cover off there is a bit of old dirt and mud from running off road. Probably need to clean that, but makes me think the other side would do the same?
