Does anyone know what kind of bulb fit/replaces the rear directional light?

The lens is red and there is no suffix (i.e. 3157 = white, 3157A = amber) to the previously mentioned part number (3156); which was sourced from the owners manual so it's safe to say with 100% certainty that they are white.

Most the rear tailamp lights are LED with the exception of the turn signal and reverse light . I'am thinking about changing the turn signal bulbs to LED ones. Any concerns or consideration before I try this?

I suspect you mean the ones from Walmart or something similar that convert the bulb to LED?

I heard these are not that bright.

LEDs have much lower resistance than normal bulbs, and the car will think the bulb has blown. Most cars let you know by causing the turn signals to flash rapidly.

There is a modification around this by adding a resistor to the circuit. I think there is a web site that sells LED retrofit bulbs.

Once I get the bulbs, I'll test them out, and if I don't like the outcome, I'll keep the stock ones in. I'll let you all know what happens.
