    On my dripping tap the metal cover you refer to above is stuck.

    It is completely smooth, so there is no way to get any purchase to undo it with a tool (I also do not want to damage it).

    I have tried applying WD40, but this has not helped.

    Do you have any suggestions to help me remove this cover?

    i take it you are referring to an (easy clean ) cover

    water pump pliers if its stuck


    or a rubber strap wrench

    forget about not damaging it you usually do :cry:
