Behind right rear bumber

I was recently rear ended. It was a glancing blow as there is virtually no damage; however, it did push out the section of the bumper and the “snaps” have disconnected, and there is some loosened plastic you in the rear wheel well.

I was just wondering if anybody knew of any sensitive things behind that bumper or in that area that could be damaged but unseen.

Might be helpful if we knew the MY of your Leaf.
I had to replace the rear bumper on my 2011 and there's nothing much back there...except a couple of tail lights.

The rear camera is located in the rear hatch handle. It's a PITA to open the hatch with it there, but it's out of harm's way.

The cabin releif vents are located behind the rear bumper.

If only a few clips were pulled out, forget about it and keep on driving.... If you want to go crazy, take off the bumper cover and replace everything with unbroken clips... That may be a fun project and you will get to see how its made...
