Flasher relay location

I just recently had a flasher go out on me. Where can I find the relay on a M5?

Ok, maybe I'm being stupid but I can't find a relay on the steering colum. This is what I saw from looking at the left side of the steering colum.

However in the back here I found 2 orange 4 prong relays. These are multi use relays. I don't know if these would have any effect on the flasher.

Not so down, the orange relays are for the sliding roof, seat heating and power windows, the black one is for the interior lights, the flasher relay is on the column, better, inside, a couple oinch far from the wiper and flashers stalks, undet the half pipe cover in back plastic.
Follow the cables from the white junction back to the stalks, you'll find the relay
