Turn Signal Issue (ARB bumper?)

over the last month when i would hit my turn signal i go a buzz from the relay (pektron).

First the left turn signal stopped working all together, then the right went out not long after.

When I hit the hazard the front right and both rear bulbs flash properly.

This leads me to believe it's not the flasher relay that is out (duh).

The driver's side bulb on my ARB does not flash.

I'm assuming this is the source of my issue.

I pulled the housing and everything looks good... solid contact... bulb isn't blown.

Moreover my fuse looks good.

What's going on here?

Any recommendations?

remember two things...

Quick diagnosis, swap the working front bulb to side not working. If it works there, you know the other bulb is bad. If it doesn't work, you know the bulb fixture is bad and can start trouble shooting that. Could be corrosion inside the fixture, or at wiring connectors, or the wiring itself. But the bulb swap is a quick way to start.
