According to my manual, all of the indicator bulbs are PY 21 w.
Apart from the side indicators. Which I think are small capless style.

I Wouldn't bother I put LED CANBUS bulbs in my 407 in both the indicator and the tail lights it kept throwing up errors etc and the indicators flashed very quickly like there was a bulb blown. I replaced them with normal bulbs and all was good in the world again.

CANBUS LEDs will work but only in the front or back, not both.
To get LEDs working both front and rear I suspect that ballast resistors will be needed.

LED brake lights didn't work either.
Gibbo and COLINELLIS like this.

You could just go to Car Bulbs, Headlight Bulbs, Wiper blades, headlamp bulbs, Xenon Bulbs: Autobulbs Direct Ltd and type in your registration number. A lot of other online retailers of bulbs and tyres will have similar systems.

I've fitted them onto the sides. I'm not sure if I'll bother with the rear one.
