This steam valve on a convector is not closing when pressurized and needs to be replaced. The problem is it is in a very tight spot and I cannot figure out how to remove it. Any help is much appreciated.

The convector has TWO unions one is on the supply valve and the other is usually a union ell.

If you loosen both unions (with system off and cool) the element can be removed air vent replaced and element cleaned to give better heat transfer
