Turn signal in rear not working?

Hey guys, been reading here awhile, but never really had anything of value to post/ask until now.

I own a 2005 Cobalt SS and my rear turn signal is out. About a week ago whenever I had my left turn signal on, I noticed the "click" and blinking of the indicator were significantly faster than the right. Today, my back turn signal stopped functioning, yet the front left turn still works. If it just suddenly went out and I was not experiencing the quicker flashing, I would think it was the bulb alone. Should I be looking to buy a replacement bulb or is it something else? Any incite you guys would have would be greatly appreciated, as I have a feeling it may be a relay or switch.

It's probably just the bulb...it's also a quick and cheap test. Pop a new one in (or switch one out from the other side for a test).
Chances are that it's the bulb based on what you describe though. If not, relay is next thing in list to check.

Replaced the bulb, still no luck. Drove down to an AutoZone and they said they didn't carry the proper relay, as it was a dealer part. So I guess tomorrow I'll have to drive down to a GM dealer and have them straighten this out. Anyone know if the one-year warranty for Certified Used will cover this? (figure bumper to bumper probably doesn't cover wear & tear items most likely)

Also, if anyone has a cheaper/quicker alternative to where I could procure said relay, please let me know!
