so it's a "bayonet" style with fingers that lock into the you've loosened until stop....and it's going to pop off....I'd tap the bottomside to try to "punch" it off....perhaps it has a vacuum holding it on~ you've got to tell us where is the fluid leakin' from~?

okay, it has the plastic...and you need to rotate and you are doing...perhaps the rubber has gone "gummy" gluing the cap just need to put it the right spot...grab it with a channel locks and pull straight up~ I'd do it myself for you, if I was there~
