Cant reach the vents on my radiator.
After lurking hear for several months and absorbing some of the wealth of information I have just about got the one pipe system in my (new to me) 100 year old Dutch sorted out. All the radiators get steam at just about the same time and they all get plenty hot. I am now focusing my attention on two of the radiators in my family room. They get hot but the vents are noisy as heck. I would like to change them as I did with the other 10 in the house but I cant reach them. The radiators are different from all the others in that they are kind of built in to the wall. I believe they are called convection type? I can see and touch the vent but there is no way I could get my hand in there to change it out. There are a couple of screws on the front that have been painted over probably a thousand times. From the position of the screws I cant imagine them being what would give me access to the vent. I'm wondering if I have to disconnect the unit from the pipe to pull it out of the wall and get at the vent? I hope not because the nut is very close to the floor and the foot of the unit so getting it off with my big open end wrench will be a problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
