  • 1. Try pulling up on the cap as your rotate it.
    2. Try pushing down as you rotate the cap.
    3. With a pair of channel locks squeeze till it is a little oval in shape, then turn.
    4. Break the cap off with the channel locks, then work the threaded part out.
Replace with the new cap you just bought.
