89 TRX350 - gas cap has taken a poo

Hey guys. I was going to check the fuel level in my 89 TRX350 when I couldn't get the gas cap off. It has the little plastic "lock/open" lever on top of it. It feels like one side isn't opening when I flip the little switch thing. I didn't want to just pry the cap off for fear I wouldn't get it back on. I tried to find a new cap online in case I just have to break this one to remove it, but they don't seem to be available.

Help? What's a fellow to do?

Well I got impatient. Pried it off with a crowbar, thoroughly broke the locking mechanism to ensure noone could lock it again, then held the cap down with a piece of random bracketry.

My cap is in the same situation. Loose but won’t release. I’ve been working it back and forth with a pair of channel locks. No joy. But prying it off seems to stress the tank itself and I don’t want to have to replace it too. How did you pry yours off?
