Default Oil cap wonít come off

Hello to all!
i went to add some oil to my 1997 XK8 and found that, although the cap turns and makes the ratcheting noises, itís not coming off.
Any recommendations?
Thank you in advance
Nick

Push in or press down on it while turning, like you would do with child safety caps on medicine bottles.

Thanks again!
