Question about Cars & Trucks
Wickes domestic thermostatic radiator radiator valve is stuck in the closed position as it has been closed throughout the summer. The dial assembly is easily removed, and it is clear that the internal spring which normally opens the valve is unable to open the valve. Can I remove more of the valve to access the mechanism without having to drain the system? usually the spring can be freed by a gentle tap, but this does not work for one of the valves. Any suggestions?.( NB nothing to do with cars or trucks ).

at the bottom of the radator at one of the corners useally the left side there is what is called a petcock, turn that counter clock wise and the radator will start to drain, open the radator cap and it will go alot faster.

there is a rod that connects the solenoid to the lock assy. from inside the van you can move it with your hand or pliers and then open the hatch. you will need to clean up the lock because ther will be corrosion and then use a white grease to lube the whole thing. operate by hand a few times before you close it up. there is an access port by the lock inside the door so you dont need to take the whole panel off.
