I somehow broke off the ACT- and the PWR-Leds from my Raspberry Pi 3. It's still working fine, but i want to solder some new ones on. What kind of Led do i need?

From the schematics available at www.raspberrypi.org we learn that the LED's package size is SMD 1611. I assume that is the metric code which corresponds to the imperial size of 0605. Given the resistors of 470 ohms any LED with a forward current of about or a little less than 5 mA should do.
