Hi, i wish it were that simple, I suspect that over the years it has become quite solid, i installed it and recall using the internal piece to tighten the threads, undoing is another matter, what i expect will happen is that the plastic will break on the tool that you use to undo it, but i thank you for your replies

Can't remember Hot & Cold, it was quite some time ago, ive ordered a tool off e bay, i will give it a try and put some wellie on it, if the tool breaks i have not lost nothing, the only other way i can think of is to use a multi tool and put a series of cuts into the plastic but i will have to be really careful,
