Hi all my rear left side indicator light blows at least once every two month. Any ideas what the problem could be

Check the left light cluster wiring connection for poor connections and corroding and the earth. Try running a new earth from inside the light cluster metalwork to a good earth on the body I have seen a few with corroded pins causing problems.
Update sorry didn't realize you had the latest B9 van I was talking about the earlier M59 models.
Are we there yet????? Huh

What make of bulbs are you using, because 90% sold seem to be rubbish, worth considering.

Quite expensive, and delivery takes weeks, but they're superb and should last for ever.  About as bright as a bulb, but more visible, especially as you get the fast on/off you get with LEDs instead of the fading/dimming you get with a bulb - I assume everyone else is half-blind, and don't want to be crashed into.  I don't get any messages or fast flashing with them in the rear, but do if I fit them at the front.  I'm just about to add a loading resistor so I can fit them in the front too.  You also lose the "fried egg" effect, as they're not yellow when off.

I've already replaced the side indicator with an LED too, again with no problems.

Unusall looking bulbs,and would these be compatible with my van

Not or wanting to criticise them, but best to get a brand that is well known like Osram or Philips. 
Suspect Halfords would use a bulb for max profit, and not quality.
we use to buy cheap bulbs, as they cost pence to buy and you make a few quid extra, but it gets embarrassing when customers keep coming back with the same fault. 
We now only use Osram , which are not exactly ridiculously priced , and we get zero come backs.
