I just re-ran all basic calibration steps from the Original Prusa i3 MK2 Manual.

Now, when doing the first layer calibration, lines that are running in positive X direction are ok, while those running in negative X direction are severely squished.

Print of the default V2Calibration.gcode file on my Prusa i3 MK2 (The "waviness" of my print bed is an artifact of the camera lens distortion of my smartphone)

I already did Bed level correction, so each line is exactly the same width over its entire distance and tried to raise the live-adjust Z, but that leads to the thin lines not adhering at all. My printer is 100% stock, I modified nothing about it.

What can I do to troubleshoot this further?

As pointed at by @Horitsu, the Nozzle was the problem. Its outflowing hole was not perfectly round anymore, leading to a higher extrusion rate in one direction than others.

I exchanged it, and now everything works great again!
