Depends on the particular wheel option on the car but yes many factory hub caps are held on by either the wheel lug nuts or by screw on caps that thread onto the wheel stud like a lugnut. This keeps them from falling off or being easily stolen.
Jack up and support the vehicle on the sub frame. Remove the wheels. Unbolt the strut to knuckle bolts. Unbolt the strut mount from the strut tower (3 13mm head bolts) Remove the strut assembly.
It your replacing with "quick struts" reinstall and have the alignment done.
If your just replacing the strut you will need to bring the old strut assemblies to a shop to have the springs compressed. Once the springs are compressed the strut nut can be removed from the strut and the strut can be replaced.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE STRUT NUT FROM THE STRUT WITHOUT COMPRESSING THE SPRINGS. YOU WILL HURT YOURSELF.
It you go inside the trunk and pull the liner back at the rear you will see plastic nuts that hold the tail light studs, remove the "finger nuts" and remove the tail light assembly to replace the bulbs. This is outlined in the owners manual in most Ford products.

Turn Signal/Stop Lamp Assembly Replacement - Rear
Nut, Turn Signal/Tail Lamp (Qty: 3) Tip Pull back rear compartment carpet to gain access to lamp. Tighten 2 N·m (18 lb in)
Lamp, Turn Signal/Tail Lamp Tip Twist the bulb socket and pull inward to replace the bulb.
License Lamp Replacement

Lamp, License Lamp Tip Twist the bulb socket and pull inward to replace the bulb.
Asuming you mean taillight/turnsignal, and not highmounted brake light:
1.open the trunk
2.Remove 4 wingnuts on trunk trim (there are two on each side)
You can do it by only removing 2 on one side, but it makes a nicer job,
3.Pull back the trunk "trim" the carpeted cardboard
4.Remove 2 wingnuts which hold the taillight assembly in place
Pull out the taillight assembly; you might want to remove (i.e. unattach or unplug) the wiring harness
5.Turn the particular bulb's socket (there's 5 back there: 2 tail, 1 back up, 1 side marker, 1 brake/turn) counterclockwise, and it removes from the assembly, holding the bulb.
6. Pull out bulb and replace.
6. Reverse steps to reassemble.
The procedure is as follows:--
Working from the trunk: 1. locate the 2 retaining knobs (doohickeys that you fasten the trunk cargo net to) for the Hard plastic trunk liner near to and inside of the rear light assembly. Unscrew the knobs. 2. Pulling back the plastic liner, locate the 4 studs (threaded posts). 3 will be located vertically in a line, the fourth, outboard and lower. Using a 10mm wrench(small), remove 3 of the 4 nuts fastening the light assembly to the body. DO NOT remove the lowest nut of the 3 in a vertical line, as this does not fasten the light assembly. DON'T LOSE THE NUTS OR WASHERS.
Working from the rear of the car: 1. Hand pull the light assembly from the car body. 2. Remove bad lamp. Twist lamp socket and pull out of assembly. Pull lamp and replace with #3057. Reassemble: 1. Test light prior to reassembly. 2. Ensure Gasket material for assembly and studs is intact, this keeps water/dust out and dampens movement (prevents rattling and increases the life of lamp). 3. Use Reverse instruction for reassembly. --------------The taillight/backup light/license plate light assembly is separate from the brake light/turn signal light assembly on the Buick LeSabre. No matter what rear bulb you have to replace, you must access the trunk area to do so.Open the trunk of the Buick LeSabre.Locate 7 nuts underneath the trunk lid (3 on each end of the trunk lid and 1 in the middle). Remove each one using a nut driver.Manipulate the trunk lid at chest level and gently pull the rear taillight assembly slightly away from the trunk lid.Locate the burned out bulb sockets and then remove the bulbs. Insert the new bulbs into the socket and test by turning on the lights before reassembling.Replace the tail light assembly by aligning the studs inside the predrilled holes in the trunk lid. Refasten the 7 nuts.Remove the cargo net if applicable to replace the brake and/or turn signal light.Unscrew the plastic wingnut that the cargo net is attached to. Pull back the trunk liner.Remove the 2 plastic wingnuts under the trunk liner.Pull the brake light assembly outward from the back of the LeSabre.Locate the socket of the burned out bulb and then turn counter clockwise 1/4-inch to release it from the assembly.Remove the old bulb from the socket and replace with a new one. Test the light before reassembling.Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this

I have a 2002 lesabre and suspect it is the same. The light assemblies are bolted to the car from the inside of the trunk. Mine has three sections. Left side of trunk, across the back of the trunk and right side of the trunk. Open the trunk and look thru the small holes in the back for nuts that hold on the sections. They may require a deep socket to reach. Also not all the nuts need to be loosened. Trial and error. Once the nuts are removed the light assemble is freed from the car. Don't let it fall and scratch the car. The wires will help hold it in place. The light holders usually turn/twist and pull out. A little bit of a pain, but not too difficult. Again the deep sockets are probably required.
Following steps helps to replace ignition switch on a buick lesabre 1999
First open the trunk of your Buick Century. On each side you will see two big plastic nuts. They may be used as hooks for your trunk net, if you have one.
Next remove the two nuts on whichever side your turn signal bulb needs replaced. You should be able to remove these by hand, but if they are a little tight, slip a screwdriver in one of the hooks for leverage.
Now you will want to carefully pull the carpet back, just far enough to expose two more plastic nuts underneath. Follow the same steps as above to remove these two nuts.
Push the metal studs that you just revealed toward the outside of the car. This will loosen the tail light assembly so that you can pull it out.
Finally slightly twist and then pull the bulb assembly attached to the wire out of the taillight assembly. This will reveal the bare bulb. Pull the bulb straight out of the lamp assembly. Replace with the new bulb.
At this point check to make sure the turn signal now works. Finally, reassemble the lamp, carpet and nuts just as you found them.
