    Search for my posts/threads "coolant" or "expansion".

    Two people ideally, one with two flat blade screwdrivers and the other with mole grips to pull the stuck part out. One levers, the other pulls.

    New cap is about ten squid at the dealers.

    Purchase the replacement

    Into the old trapped one, drill in two long large screws
    Grip with pliers, turn and free
    Dispose of the old part
