You're going to have to disconnect your rear lights to diagnose the problem I suggest you disconnect one at a time to pinpoint which side is actually causing the problem also examine the connector connected to your rear lights for overheating and meltdown, you'll find two plastic black nuts is what holds them to the car.
The problem is the connector that connects to the unit which holds several bulbs.

This should solve your problem, enjoy.

How to change the front brake pads on a v reg clio

The Renault clio should be easy,.jack up one wheel and remove the wheel and see what if any special tools will be needed. most have two bolts that hold the caliper to the back plate. The caliper hold the pads. Some of thes bolts are Allen head, some are Torq head, all are metric. some are held in with clips, remove the retaining pins and pull the clips out and the caliper comes out the front. Press the piston back into the caliper, so the new pads will fit over the rotor.
