Default Back-up Light LED Replacement

I have a 2014 A8L and want to upgrade the back-up lights to LED. I have checked several sites that specialize in LED upgrades to no avail. I am unable to find any information (to include in the owners manual) to indicate the type of bulb and the removal procedures for the lights. Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks...I actually did do a search prior to making the post. I obviously did not find it which is why I asked. TBH, I was hesitant to do so because of responses like yours but I do appreciate the link.
