protect cap on the rapid film level ME

Hey Folks
Have next problem to resolve .The metal cap (sort of button) that set the filmlevel ( to go to the next filmexposure) on the body is lost .It was easily turning maybe to easy cause I'v lost it . It's just behind the numerique system of filmcounter . I'v bought yesterday a body for parts , but rarely from this body I can move the cap to bring it in the place of the lost one . How can I remove such cap - wich material I have to use or is it better to go to a shop where they have special material to open it ?
I ve took a photo from the repair-body .The cap is on the right side .

THANKS !!!!

If you have a rubber glove or finger cot or any grippy flat item. I've spun the caps off by using a rubber glove and pressed my thumb on the cap and pushed and turned at the same time to loosen. You must turn clockwise... if the "thread lock" is too tight, heat it a little and then turn...remember clockwise-off.

Info from, look below at #1, my blog on ME supers bumper repair, but same on ME as well



from

Cool!
It is always good news when someone saves another one from the junk pile.
