Default Audi A1 Rear Lights Not Working

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum, I own a 2011 manual black Audi A1 and I was wondering if someone could help me with an issue. I got hit by another car on my back bumper and shortly after that I noticed that my left rear headlights started acting weird. A few days passed and the lights stopped working, all of them from the left side. I then noticed that one of the holes and cable of part number 6Q0937702 got burned:

I bought the part and just reconnected everything. Everything worked good again but just after the first drive, all the lights went off again. Found out that it was burned again:

One of the pins of the headlight assembly itself got completely burned too:

I don't know if the car hitting my bumper was just coincidence or if that's the cause of everything. I noticed today that the insurance didn't repair the metal bar that is underneath the plastic bumper, they just repainted and that's it. Does anyone have any ideas on what could be happening? Has anyone experienced a similar issue?

Thanks a lot!

By the way, the metal bar underneath the plastic bumper is bent, maybe that is something important I really don't know :/

Thanks for your reply, just tried that and unfortunately there is no water inside the tailgate. Any other ideas?
