it is the same bulb, its a two filament bulb 21/5w "stop/tail"
replacing the bulb can be tricky but can be done with a phillips screw driver, some time and effort
i can go into detail if your going to do it yourself

Is it a single contact or double contact bulb?

its a double contact bulb
first you need to remove the 2 screws from the outside
then you need to go inside the boot behind the light unit near the bottom there will a electrical plug to disconnect (small button on side)
near this there will be a large cross shaped plastic nut that scews off by hand (might be very tight)
this should release the bottom half of light unit, the top half is held on by a plastic clip which will release with a strong tug
once the unit is off the car the centre section of the rear comes out to access all bulbs


hope this helps, let me know if you have any problems
