Hopefully this shows the problem.

As Glenn said you'd have to drill it and insert something. Id cut a slot all the way through then put piece of flat steel in the slot and turn it but much depends on what gear you have and how hard the cap was wound on

The cap unscrews without any problem - it's what is normally in the cap (and seals in the reservoir neck) which is pulling free.

My biggest concern is damaging the reservoir.

Anyone ever replaced the bush on an E8/9x blower motor?

Ive lubed mine previously using a light machine oil, and it solved it for 6 months, now its squeeking again. Spending $200 on a new assembly seems crazy when its just the bush 😕 

Tempted to try pull it out and replace it with a bearing.

I had one break but it left enough to get some polygrips onto it. You could drive two screws into it and then lay a screwdriver between them to wind it out.
