    Hi everyone,

    I've been searching the web and this forum, but I can't find an exact answer to this query. I have a Worcester Bosch 27 cdi. All works fine, however I'm bleeding a rad in. I can't get any pressure back into the system.. I've got the key in, and turned to the lock padlock position, plenty of vids on YouTube to show how this is done.

    When I open the little white valve... Water isn't going into the boiler, it's just dumping out of either the white screw or through the key. My guess is that something was blocking the path into the system, and a seal has gone but since I haven't done this procedure for a couple of years, I thought I'd check whether the valve should dump water out if for example the key was in the wrong position.. or is the leak an indication its in need of a replacement fillling loop?

    Thanks in advance,

    Tom

    I took the boiler cover off to have a look, and yes you must be right because water was coming out from above the key, so I tried wiggling it and removing and reinventing a few times... I'm not certain what I actually did, but it worked.

    Asif by magic, after a day of swearing at it, the moment I post for some advice it seems to work! Thanks very much for the prompt reply.

    An engineer that can't get inserting a key right... Feeling sheepish now!

    Not to worry its a bugger to get in sometimes, next time put a bit soap or washing up liquid on the o rings on the key, it'll go home a lot easier.
