    Hi all
    Just been doing the pre winter checks and went round bleeding the rads. A couple of the bleed screws in my set up are dodgy, whereby they do up to a certain tightness then slip off loose again, one of which is now dripping when the heating is on.
    I haven't removed or checked the valves as I'm wary of making them worse, I was hoping I could just buy some replacements. Unfortunately there's nothing similar on ebay or at the merchants websites. House was built around 2002.
    Any help would be much appreciated.
    Cheers Chris
