Disco 4.5 rear light security screws

Hi all, I’m sure one of you knowledgeable lot will know.
2015 4.5 has security screws in the rear lights as in can see done up but not undone. Does anyone know a clean way to get them out before I grind,grab drill etc.

Many thanks in advance

Ditto Pete, I had to remove some I’d fitted the number plate with last weekend, very disappointed on how easy they came out using pressure on a large flat screwdriver.
Put the pressure on, find the “flat” part of the screw head and turn slowly.
I swapped mine out for hex head screws, at least there’s a chance the thief haven’t got the right size hex on him Smile

Great thanks for your replies, I haven’t yet tried the most simple and obvious route purely because I thought of you could undo them with a flat it defeats the object 🤣 I’ll have a go. Cheers

Hi

Plus 1 what’s already been suggested

I’ve also used a dremel in the past to cut a slot to make it easier to remove them , then used some security bolts that come with the special tool

Ie, like these

Also some plastic covers to make it even more difficult if anyone attempts to remove them
