Chimney cap replacement help?

Hi All, I would like to replace my chimney cap but I am not sure how to remove the current cap. It does not appear to be attached with screws, bolts or rivets. Are some caps attached without hardware? Thanks, Mick

All I've messed with have simply slid down the liner, no fasteners.

Just be super careful around that liner. It is very brittle. If you crack it you will want to $hoot yourself. If you have a spouse, they may shoot you before you get a chance to shoot yourself once they find out the cost to repair.
