Rear turn signal malfunction again..?

So awhile ago i had a malfunction and it so the front blinked fast and the rear wasent working and so on...it went away and came back and went away for a good 3 weeks. i was happy because i thought it went away but than today it happened again i took out the broken light i thought was broken and swapped it with the left side which is working fine to see if its the bulb that isnt working. It turned out that it wasent the bulb and might be something to do with the housing? im not sure can you please tell me whats wrong? my friend works at bmw and told me to come in on monday and atm im nervous as to see what the problem is i know for sure its not the bulb which i was hoping would be because thats only a 5 dollar fix
