LED Taillight confusion

I was just looking at the Lighting System PDF posted here (thanks anchorman!).
https://www.cx3forum.com/forum/39401-post8.html

I have a GT with the LED lighting. The owner's manual indicates that the taillights are integrated units with non-replaceable LEDs, but the above mentioned PDF lists the "Rear turn light - Rear combination light (LED type)" as having a regular bulb. Is this a misprint?

It's correct. The rear turn light is a regular bulb, which you should be able to change according to the instruction manual.
I've no idea why the haven't fitted LED turn lights, when both the tail lights and brake lights are LEDs.
Then again the front turn lights are also using a regular bulb even if you have full LED headlights, so mayb it's just Mazda using some weird logic.

Thanks for the clarification. Some parts of the owners manual have been written in a way that is about as clear as mud.
