E90 (2006 325i) tail light (driver's side) replacement

Hi all.
I was involved in a fender bender hit & run in a parking lot. My guess is that someone had backed into the rear left panel of my car (there are minor scratches on my bumper) but the lens of my left tail light were broken.
The light currently works (i taped the glass back on) when I turn on my night light and it also works when i brake. However, the turn signal doesnt flash, and the blinker blinks noticeably faster than before. The check light notification pops up on my dashboard.
I have watched a couple of youtube videos on how to manually change the light (i only need the left panel) and it seems simple enough. However, are any of the symptoms i listed above an indicator of any serious issues? If i detach the light and plug it back in, should I expect it to work normally? Any input is appreciated, and if any additional info is required please let me know!
Thanks!

Replacing the tail light assembly was so easy my wife replaced all four units at night in about an hour. Take things one step at a time, replace the unit and see if everything returns to normal.

Thanks for responding. The current blinker is not working, as mentioned earlier, and the left turn blinker on my dashboard blinks faster than usual. I already ordered a replacement part, but Im trying to prepare for the worst as to how serious of an issue this could potentially be. Again, I appreciate any and all feedback.
