If its faulty you replace it they cannot be repaired.

Remove it, take care with hot coolant!

Place it in a small pan of cold water and heat it up.

As the water starts to simmer you should see it slowly opening.

If the water starts to boil and its still closed it needs replacing.

They cost around the 10 mark or slightly more.

After its replaced don't forget the anti freeze at this time of year.
