You will need to take the bulb out and measure the size but you are looking for Festoon 239 bulbs. Search on ebay and you could find LED ones.

I got LED festoon bulbs off amazon. The a brand called cutequeen that do good ones but sizing is a pain;

What you need is 36mm for the front and back interior lights but there's a lot of "margin" between manufacturers in terms of size. For instance I bought three different types (they're cheap so it didn't really matter even at 9 in a pack) and only one of the brands were actually 36mm. one were closer to 40mm (still would fit but a bit tight on the contacts) and the other came up as 32mm and would fall out.

Also check the warmth and lumens - I ended up with 6 smd (number of LEDS on the light) that were meant to be warm white but they're pretty cold. Don't mind it as they're fairly bright (about 150 lumens). I did try 70 lumen ones that were really warm (like incandescent) but it just wasn't enough light when it's pitch black.
