I and many others have shared your experience. Put a rag on the cap
then grip with a large set of pliers. Once you get the cap off I find
it helps to bend the two metal tabs on the bottom side of the cap down
just a little. This will relieve some of the pressure (grip) so you
won't need a tool next time.
Of course you still want a little resistance so it won't vibrate
loose. Adjust the tabs, replace, adjust,.... till it's just right.
