On your SLK as well as most newer MB's there isn't a seperate flasher unit. The blinkers are operated thru the "lamp" control module & the sound you hear comes from the instrument cluster.
I would check the bulbs & connections on the right side as that could be the problem. You might swap the bulbs from side to side.
DO all of the lights flash with the hazzard switch?
