    Almost certain it's just above the 2 ribs.
    Palm of your hand (maximum contact) and push down and twist.

    Have you tried just pulling the top off ? had other taps like this , takes a bit of patience and wriggling about but they will move .

    Top cap on those I think. Get the rubber gloves out for extra grip.

    No I'm not cheap, but I'm happy in my work.

    Wouldn't you rather have somebody that's happy working in your house?
