    The cap is removed by turning it counter clockwise.

    Looks like you spun the aluminum "outer cap" off the stainless "inner cap". There is an "O" ring that should be on the inner cap.

    Try turning that stainless cap off, and you should be in business. You can then either epoxy the two back together or send it back for repair.
