Indicator lights

My son's 1998 916 Spider has a problem with the front & side indicator lights.
When he signals left the left light works at normal brightness however the right lights also flash but at a lower level of brightness. The reverse applies when he signals right.
The rear lights work normally.
Have only just purchased the car so would appreciate any suggestions as to where to start

Thanks for the help & responses to date. Another piece of info is that the hazard lights work 100%. Does that suggest that the problem may be with the indicator unit?

As a general tip this sort of thing is often down to a poor Earth/s connections. Sorry I can't be more specific as to where to start looking.

Might be worth changing the bulb also, could just be an old one that is weak, also possible that the bulb holder not making a good connection,
