    Tell a lie, i could be wrong! a quick search suggests 380 which is 21/5. But i could swear the last time i did it i changed all four bulbs with 382s

    Most new cars run canbus systems which allow multiple voltages to be passed through one wire. In essence, u can run stop tail off a single filament bulb. Just take the bulb out and check, not hard to do

    Simple 21w bulbs and as you say the canbus sends 5w for side lights and 21w for the brighter stop light.
    Changing was a doddle used the screwdriver in the tool kit.
