inside the car, there are bolts, top one has a cap over it, bottom (in boot) doesnt, the tool to undo them is in the spare wheel.

a) mine never had covers over them, so I wouldn't know about that

b) I never had a special tool either, (probably stolen by local garage)
I just use a socket set

c) while they are off, you might as well tint them

gotta agree with that but dont tint the reflector, some police can be funny with tinted reflectors.
