Turn signal flasher

Hello I just got a 1980 280SE euro W126. Among the few problems that I have is the turn signals are not working. The hazard lights are not working either. I did a search and cycled the hazard switch several times very firmly. Where is the flasher? I would like to try to spray it out with contact cleaner before replacing it. Does it also goes thru a relay as well? I have had good luck with cleaning contacts on relays in the past. Which relay is it as the car did not come with an owners manual. I have not gotten a manual for this car yet. I checked and cleaned all the fuse contacts and all fuses look ok. Thanks for any help. The center console is half apart because the previous owner took out his after market indash.
