I have seen many complaints on this but always thought the solution was simple. For the Da 40mm Limited I bought 31.5mm snap on cap, several sellers on ebay, for under $4.50 including shipping.

For the FA 31mm Limited I am using an old Pentax 58mm snap onlens cap, believe it came from old F28 70mm 3.5-4.5 lens. Fits perfectly inside the lens hood. For storage or travel the original metal hood fits right over the 58mm snap on. Havent seen this posted before so showing what I did to simplify.

So, what kind the original 31mm lens cap is? A screw in type? I hear that the petal hood cannot be removed.

The original is a metal push on cap that goes over the petals, and will also go over the snap on cap.
