Hi ALL, is there a tool to open this cap without damaging it? What can I do to apply force to these 2 dimples and turn the cap? Thank you :)

you need a spanner wrench. I have used needle nosed pliers in the past but it may gouge the surface when trying to turn the screw cap

even with the right tool you have to take it slow and easy not to scratch the dimples. Are you changing the t-bar?
Thank you Both. Got one for spare, maybe I will put it on my smaller Wiki 1500. Kind of like the look of it instead of a knob.
kind of stupid to me when they put Loctite on knowing that the part need to be install.

Being they are both JM do you need to remove the shaft. Maybe you can just switch they out leaving shaft installed on t-bar.

No, not this type. The carbon T bar yes , same shaft….. this shaft need to switch out the shaft. This is screw in from the top securing it, carbon type screw in from the side. (Pic stolen from Google search)

I mean removing ball and shaft from arm and installing t-bar and shaft to reel. If they fit there is no need to remove either ball or t-bar from shaft.

I need to change out the main shaft as well. The original main shaft wouldn’t fit this T bar :p

Wow! That’s a big knob. Waiting for one handle from REV to arrive. Maybe I’ll order some color coded handles with Carbon fiber t-bars for my PE2’s.
