Cap on the water tank

Hello,

We have recently received our first Eriba and are a major learning curve.
Can someone please help with some advice in how to remove the cap on the water filler.
I have noticed on another post that they seem to be a bit fragile. The manual says unlock the cap turn it a quarter turn and take it off.
I have tried quarter turns in both directions and even applied gentle pressure while rotating the cap.
No doubt it is something simple but so far it is eluding me. Many thanks.

If you mean the blue cap on the outside fill it is a pain. You do need 1/4 turn anti clockwise, but the lugs break VERY easily. The simple fool proof spring loaded centre fails. We carry a spare and spare and add a spot of vaseline on the rubber washer.

The water cap is fiddly and fragile. However aligning the lugs before pressing the cap firmly in works and if you do break it, as I did, there are many inexpensive replacements on eBay.

I've just checked my old e-bay purchases and this is where I bought a couple. You may find cheaper, I don't know. If you buy a barrel removal key you could put your lock in . I did not bother. Werbung: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/283962017602

I did not post a German e-bay link. For some reason the forum software alters things.

I never use the outside filler. Just have a 10L Water carrier with a tap. Sit it on top of the tank with the screw cap removed and let it fill itself, and repeat a couple of times.
