    I'm not sure what's next since the rubber bung trick opened both of mine. Probably getting a lens wrench with points and use the two holes in the cap. I imagine with lots of downwards pressure you might be able to open it without damage. If you do damage it, it will only be cosmetic.

    I have had OM-1 and OM-2 cameras where the advance lever cap screw got sort of "glued" to the plastic piece under it. Probably from heat and age. No matter how hard or what method I tried, the screw was not going to come off with friction.

    I don't have a proper tool so I used a pair of jewelers needle nosed pliers into the holes, with a lot of force and caution and prayers to finally get those caps off.

    I found that putting adhesive remover, like Goo-Gone allowed the decorative cap to come free from the screw. I am planning to stick toothpicks in the holes and spray paint those covers with black enamel. Then I can glue them back onto the screw.

    Real life ain't always as easy as it shows in books, or on the web.

    The OM-2 also uses the foam by the prism and will go bad and eat the prism coating. Mine had to be replaced.

    It took a pair of washing-up gloves wrapped around some pliers. Whoever had had the thing off the last time had glued it back on.
