Hi,
I have an old tap on the bath. Please see the attached image.

Recently the water pressure is very low and flow is very slow.

I cleaned the aerator. It is clean.

The next step is to check the washer in the cartridge.

But, I cannot open the top cap of the tap.

How do I remove the tap cap. Please see the attached images.

I am not a plumber. Can anyone please help me?
Thanks

Is that golden part a screw? It is used to turn on the tap. If I turn it will just open the water.

It is not turning at all. I thought it is not removable.

Pour boiling hot water over the dome and wearing rubber gloves gives a better grip.

Rubber gloves seconded! Just the dome bit unscrews.
