Moen 'Banbury' series two-handle

My Fellow Americans:
Hi, for openers.
On a Moen Banbury 2-handle sink arrangement, I'm having a difficult time removing the cap on the very top of the spout (which is leaking around the base, by the way).
I put a rigid blade putty knife in the seam and pried, but it doesn't want o pop off. I've learned it's a goof to REALLY pry anything that's not a manhole cover.
Do I have to get down under and remove the faucet set and rebuild it on a bench?
The diagram shows O-rings, which I assume to be worn out.

This one? http://www.moen.com/shared/pdf/84424pt.pdf Yep..they just pop out..probably crud buildup. You should have a new cart ready.

Son of Moen 'Banbury' Two -Handle

Close, Gunguy, but it's the kitchen variety, with the pot-sprayer,
#87428.
The spout is tubular, with the cap on top, looks pressed in,
dia. about 2".
Diagram shows nothing holding it on there, so it must require a bit more juice than I'm putting out to pop it outa there.
I've also learned not to go galloping off before I put the saddle on the donkey, so I'll wait to hear from ya.
Thanks

Success!

Thanks a great big heap, Gunguy45 & Plumbermandan.
The spout top does in fact unscrew, but the insides were where the problem was. The two O-rings on the inner spout were gonzo
and Home Dep. had the exact ones.
The pipes underneath were bad and had no shut-offs, so I put in new ones, also.
The best part is not going it alone when terrific DIY.com folks like you are online, ready and able to help out.
Many, thanks.
Gunguy, I have a car question over in automotive, to do with trannie fluid.
God is great
