apologies for the wait

when you have 1 side operating faster than the other side then its likely you have 1 bulb on the 'fast' side thats failed or a faulty earth connection on that side

So I'd 1st check round the vehicle to see which if any of the lights on the 'fast' side is inoperative and then replace the bulb in that light

if all the lights are coming on then it means there's a poor earth somewhere or possibly a bulb thats starting to fail or one that has a corroded holder

so I'd begin by checking each of the bulbs on the 'fast' side and ensuring the bulb socket is clean and bright with some emery paper
