If that radiator is just heavily painted and not corroded ( hard to tell from my screen) you can change the manual air vent quite easily. Just take pressure off the zone and thread the old one out, install new 1/4 manual air vent, put water back on the zone and bleed the radiators.

Thank you both for your replies. Yes, it does look like paint build up rather than corrosion. I'm happy to know it's going to be fixable, but unsure of how to proceed. In order to take pressure off that zone, would I just turn off that particular radiator using the open/close handle on that particular radiator? Is it possible to describe the procedure for removing the old air vent? Would I just use a wrench and turn the part that looks like a nut? Thank you!
