Changing a rear brake light bulb in Palazzo

I had a rear brake light go out on my Palazzo. To my surprise I expected to just change the bulb but found out that the entire unit had to be replaced. It turned out not to be that big of a deal. Purchased the unit at a Pilot travel center and installed it in the parking lot. Now I need to change a light in my overhead clearance bulb (?) when I get home but not as important as the brake light.

The receipt says "Tail Lgt Sealed Red" but no part number. I can't show pics of the unit because the tablet I have won't let me upload to the web site

Those tail lights are easy to change over to LEDs. Available on Amazon for about 10 bux each. Here, on our Tuscany, the top three shine red (the lowest of those replacing the amber turn signal) and and the fourth is the white back up. They are brighter than the originals and should last forever.

I am actually in progress of doing that right now. I like he red lights so I ordered a couple of halo LED taillights to try out. If they work, I will expand to the turn signals. Back up lights are easier since the choice is much simpler.
