Transmission dipstick plug removal- 2012 Pentastar equipped

I've been reading up on the Mercedes designed W5A580 transmission installed in my Jeep. The regular service schedule say not to service but the heavy-duty schedule does. I just bought the service dipstick tool and the instructions with it confirm- service the transmission at 60k miles. Since I plan on keeping this for a long time I plan on servicing it regularly.

My question should be simple. How do you remove the darn dip stick cap?

Mopar lists a part # 04591959AA for "cap, oil filler", which sounds like a replacement cap. I'm thinking that this thing is simply torqued off and destroyed, so replaced.
