Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

It does twist and pull out slightly.On some models it can be removed completely but on this model it should twist and pull out at the same time.You may have to jiggle it to break it free as the O ring on it can make it bind.Below is a picture to see how it is threaded into the radiator.
