How to unscrew 28x1.5 adaptor from valve

Post by Molodax » 01 Feb 2019, 21:39

Can someone advise how to unscrew adaptor 28x1.5 from the valve? Is there any special tool (some sort of screwdriver?) that can be used?
The problem is that I can unscrew the valve from radiator together with adaptor, the adaptor stays inside the valve. Therefore, I cannot adjust position of the screen which is very annoying. It also looks like the adapter is made from very soft plastic, therefore, I'm afraid to broke it. I would really appreciate your help.

I had that problem once... I used lubricating oil and pliers, it took a while, but I managed to do it without damaging the adaptor. Once you have lubricated it you only have to move it a little, so the oil penetrates in the grooves of the adaptor and then it becomes easier to remove.
