    I used a pair of cutters to cut away the yellow lip so I could see where the black bit was stuck to the yellow bit and then used a hacksaw blade to cut about 2-3mm in and then prised it apart. On another one I did I didnt need to use the hacksaw it they came apart ok.

    basically ended up doing the same as you lee, but i cut too far and cut the raised ring off as well

    smoothed it all of and araldited it, left it in a vice for 6 hours, seems ok.

    only a fiver for a new cap from vx if it comes loose so not to bad.
