What do you do when the plastic piece you use to open the radiator drain valve breaks off in your fingers?

If your trying to drain it just remove the lower hose. It's going to make a mess but it's about the only option.

For the 2003+ 3rd Gen trucks, that plastic radiator drain is the biggest POS ever.
It doesn't usually break, but it won't tighten up again.
Such a good truck with such a mickey mouse rad drain.

I have more info and there are several threads on the 3rd gen rad drain.
It's a multi-piece piece of cheap plastic. Napa makes a better quality replacement.
