So, I have another problem: I used the hazard yesterday and after that (doesn't know exactly when since I realized it just today) the blinkers went out:

There's no relay sound (clicking) and neither the turn signals nor the hazard works. I've checked and replaced the fuse today (it looked good, but replaced it anyway) but that changed nothing.

Can you give me a hint where to look? I guess the blinker relay or module is a good start, but I don't know where it's located... So please tell me :)

Thanks in advance!!

Check to see if the connection on the back side of the hazard switch is loose or become disconnected. The trouble is with the hazard switch.

Ah, that sounds good! But can you tell me how to remove that hazard switch? I just looked at it and it seems that I have to disassemble half the car to get it... Hopefully there's a trick for it?

Unfortunately this pictures don't show my car, but I fugured it out nonetheless. A bit tricky, but I was able to remove the hazard switch. But as far as I can tell, it seems to work fine. In fact it's just a rather simply part...

However, I figured out where this "Turn Signal & Hazard Unit" is located and in a few hours I'll visit a local junkjard with a ready to pull used one :)

So, I've found the unit and swapped it together with the illumination control unit and another unnamed relay and now my turn signals are working again :):) Those three relays cost me 10 Euro (about 15 US$), so that's imho a good deal...

For the records:
To find "Turn Signal & Hazard Unit" you have to remove the glove box (loose 2 screws at the bottom and then put it out of the frame). There is a plate with three relays on the left side just above the cover of the center console (near the radio). This plate is fixed with three screws, loose them and you can get the plate a bit out. Now you can easily loose the three connectors. Et voilá :)

Since the "Turn Signal & Hazard Unit" is attached with another screw, it makes sense to put out the whole plate. And to identify it: There's "Mitsuba FR-3315" printed on it. Perhaps it's used in other cars, too. However a quick search on ebay showed no results.
