I don't immediately see where the difficulty would be.
You right it most likely wouldn't be difficult, but you can replace it for fifty bucks, I have had one single valve fail (thoroughly jinxing myself here) in 20 years of Saab 9-5 ownership.

It failed at my work warehouse on a 1999 high mileage base model, I called Karl at Scandinavian Auto and asked him if I needed to have it towed home (fifteen minute drive), he said "loosen the expansion tank cap and drive home" did that and had the new valve in next day.

That old rocket science thing... 馃榿

You'll never notice the valve missing in Canada. :)
Wow, she's hardly broken it yet.

You'd be surprised at how humid it gets here and I believe the valve does actually have an effect.

I only put about 5,000 kilometers a year on my car, I'll probably replace it and risk the next ten years. (y)
