you have too look at the contacts for the turn indicator bulbs...or just the bulbs themselves...VW has put in a safety feature that the single light blinks rapidly to alert the driver that he has problems in the back with lights as he cannot see...

Now have a 2009 Dodge ram 2500 (but thats not stopping me from being here...seeing as how i did own a VW for a while!)
-Only because i live in alberta and we are truck guys out here!

Stereo Setup Sold with Jetta- However install in truck is starting to get into motion.
Plans
-ALL JL AUDIO, 2-12W3 subs, 1500W TMA Monoblock, 400W TMA fourchannel, 2 Sets of components, with Double din touchscreen and GPS ALL CUSTOM

check the bulb holders for front and rear and make sure the contacts are ok. maybe replace the tray/socket.

if you tried all of the above help from the other vw guys and it didnt work, check all of the ground wires going to the light, vws are bad for having faulty wiring, i think my mk3 has the worst wiring ever!!!lol

could be your blinker relay... try just replacing the realay, pull the relay for your hazards and put it in the slot for your blinker. if that fixes it, its your relay

Mine did the same thing, it was the turn signal relay behind the hazard button. Took it to the VW dealer and they said it was a recall and fixed it for free.
