The rubber port covers/dust covers on the side of the Canon R5 and R5 C, usually these can be removed just by pulling the little tether out of the hole and can be reinstalled by pushing it back in. Before I risk breaking the cover and being without it, is that the case with this camera as well? if I gently but firmly pull on the small tether in the corner can I remove the cover from the camera completely and still be able to reinstall it at a later time if needed?

Amazing! Thanks for reporting back your success!
The opening for the tether would need to be covered I would think if this were to be removed permanently. But that can certainly be done. Some trimming of the head of that tether could also make installation and removal easier in the future. I'm tempted to cut the tether off of mine, the port cover would work just fine without this piece. Its only there to prevent it from getting lost when the ports are in use. One thing I had considered, A small black M2 button head screw could be added to this port cover through a newly created hole...and you could use that to attach it using the M2 threaded hole that is there for the strain relief. there by making the port cover easily installable and removable. This opens up possibilities!
thanks again for posting about your success for everyone!
