sometimes it's soldered/glued to the board inside! don't just pull it off. is this a cheap red laser or a green laser?

Get a wide rubber band and wrap it round once to give you more grip on the cap. Some caps are glued on tight, so if that doesn't do it, don't be tempted to use pliers, mole grips, stilsons etc - you'll definitely break, or at least misalign something.
