Hi.
I have an Ariston Microgenus mffi27 boiler. The washer on the cold water inlet appears to have gone and the connection is leaking. I've looked at the installation and service manuals, and it appears that the washer fits between a flat surface on the inlet valve and the boiler ( diagram on page 7 of the installation manual), rather than being recessed like a tap connector. Is it possible to change the washer without removing the boiler from the wall?
Thanks in advance...Phredd.

Yes you should be able to easily change it.

Isolate the cold mains then open a hot tap to release any pressure. Keep the hot tap open as you loosen the nut slowly and the plate and pipe work will empty.
