Great post, any problems show up after a couple of months of use ?For my fellow Canadians, here are links to what I decided to buy on amazon.ca (each item is a 2-pak) ... feel free to decide on another product or source (I receive no compensation whatsoever).
If you should receive a message on either product warning you it doesn't fit your 2022 Tucson, ignore it ... I can verify it works perfectly!
- Rear Signal bulbs - Amazon.ca
- Reverse bulbs - W16W T15 921 Led Reverse Light Bulb, OUSHI Canbus Error Free 12V 24V 6500K Xenon White Extremely Bright 4000 Lumen Upgrade 20SMD 3030 Chips 912 904 906 Led Back Up Light Replacement Bulbs(Pack of 2), Back Up Light Assemblies - Amazon Canada
To install, look underneath the vehicle ... at the rear on the driver's side, you'll see this (n.b. next 3 pics, credit to users johudso7 & Dekero from another forum):

The white housing at the left of the pic is the reverse bulb, while the brownish one to its right is the signal bulb. As is typical, you need to twist the housing counter-clockwise (about a half turn) to loosen it and allow the housing to pull straight out to access/change the bulb.

WARNING ... you need really small hands and strong fingers to fit into these tight spaces and get enough leverage to twist the bulb housings loose, then to tighten them again after you change each bulb! One owner reported using a 14mm socket instead to loosen the bulb housing. Another said "really long 'long-nosed' pliers (4" with 8" handles) made the job very easy." If you have large hands/fingers you might consider these tricks or perhaps obtain assistance from someone else who's suited to the task.
The passenger side rear is, as you might expect, the mirror image, but is protected by a plastic cover, held on by two plastic hex-head screws and two fasteners:

For anyone not familiar with the fasteners holding the plastic cover at the right-rear (above pic shows the nearer one partially pulled out), they look like the pic below when inserted (the splayed out bottom holds the cover onto vehicle):
You need to insert a trim tool, or a staple remover tool like this:

to pull the centre pin out, separating it from its collar (which when inserted, looks like a washer), so it releases as shown in the pic below:
Then the entire 2-piece fastener will pop out. When done, simply re-insert the fastener (in its released state as shown immediately above) and push in firmly.
Lastly, if you find any of this useful, please give me a "thumbs up"!
