Lug bolts are normally hammered or drawn into place with the use of the wheel. They are removed the same. Remove the wheel, you may have to set the rotor in such a position that allows for the lug removal. Usually a very small gap allows for it. Take a good hammer and carefully pound it in till it pops out the back. Take your new one and push it in than tap it a few times till enough thread is showing that it can be drawn in all the way with the wheel installed.

The hub caps are held on with the lug nut covers, these are plastic, and screw on the lug bolts if you use the lug wrench you can loosen the plastic hub cap lug bolts and be able to remove the hub cap without loosening the lug bolts. 2001 L200's have lug bolts rather than lug nuts.

Beat the old ones out with a hammer, push the new ones in the same way as far as you can, then zip them in all the way with the lug and an impact.
