Mushroom caps tool is a drag link socket. Get a 1/2-inch drive version and trim a couple mm off the ends of the blades. I use mine on an air impact to loosen the caps and use the torque wrench to tighten.

that's covered (that's about all BUT one) then you'll need a sorta special
tool that is kind of like a very large common screwdriver that is a socket.
I believe they're called impact drivers. The official torque on the caps is
not great, but if it hasn't been off in a long while or if it's been off and
overtorqued, it may take some patience. I pulled the pump to replace the
o-ring on mine the first time and paid the price in that I found the
mounting bolts for the pump, actually the holes they bolt into, were
stripped. I got it back together okay and then had to replace the o-ring
again (my fault). I did not want to disturb the mounting bolts again so I
did it while on the car.
