how do you change a rear wheel?

Dumb question, but I have never had a car with spats (wheel arch covers) before, so how do you remove them to be able to change the back wheels?
Can anyone show me a picture of what needs to be released/unlatched/whatever to allow these spats to be removed?
Are they easy to fit again?

Thanks for your help.
Brian

You will find a lever tucked up behind the lower edge of the skirt. If you push up slightly and move the lever toward the center of the car, the lever will drop down, releasing the latch from the fender and the skirt can be removed.
