Are DIN 72 601 Brake Lights same as 1157's?

My owners manual shows the brake light replacements being "12v 21/5w DIN 72 601." Are standard 1157's a reasonable replacement? Thanks, d.

I used 1157s up front...I wouldn't see why they wouldn't work for the rear. Unless, of course, there's a little variance in the form factor. You may want to take the burned out lamp up to the auto parts store to compare them side by side.
