    Default expansion tank cap broken

    as above ,the screw cap has come off ok but it's left the pressure relief bit behind. i'm not sure how to get it out . if i drill it ,bits will go into the exppansion bottle.an there isn't anything stuck up to get hold of,so i'm also concerned that forcing it i could deform the "neck" of the bottle
    any ideas anyone?

    not sure if this reply need to go here as its turning into a general chat.
    dont want to make a big deal about it but it does look a bit petty when
    looking at what else is in general chat
