Loose non-drive end cap on older Hugi Hub?

Well thats about it, I have a loose end cap on the non drive side of my older hugi rear hub. Has anyone rebuilt these? I have looked at the website manuals and so forth and it looks like some work. I have been working on bikes since I was 5 (I'm 32 now) so I'm not afraid to pop it open, I'd just like some insight.

How old?
Are you talking about the seal cover or the piece that caps the axle and fits the dropout?

I have a set of those at home. I'll take a look. I seem to remember it fits on with a sprung ring or o-ring, but I'll look to be sure.

Ok, so the end cap just snaps on I guess, just like the cassette rotor. That is just crazy.
