Always put a drop sheet down before committing any work in someone's house. It is very, very important to protect the floor coverings from any work that you will be carrying out.

Once your radiator is drained down, it's just a matter of undoing these two nuts here and pulling the right TLV valve off to be replaced. Once you've turned your radiator down and you've removed your old valve, fit your new valve and the overhead as well. It goes in there.
And that is it, ready for your system. Once you fix your valve and you refill your system, you must do all from upstairs down as the air rises to make sure that no air is in the system. And that's how you fix thermostatic radiator valves. .
