Just pry off the "cap" with a thin screwdriver or knife blade. Inside you'll find a membrane which will have hardened and/or broken. Scrap the old membrane and replace it with a small piece of latex cut from a rubber glove. Snapping the "cap" over the latex is what holds it in position, then trim the excess off from the outside. -- -Fred W
