    HI,

    I have a 2002 E46 318i saloon

    I have noticed that whilst indicating the light flashes as if a bulb is out. Having checked all bulbs are ok but when the indicator or hazards are selected the rear lights below the indicator illuminate.

    Can anyone help???????????

    If the bulbs are OK and the wiring checks out, I'd be looking to see if the bulb is making a good contact in the holder ...

    Kinda as monty said,while the car flashing,remove the bulbs and fiddle with them to see if anything changes.
    Did you also check the two front side indicators,the ones on the wings?
