Sorry to sound like a complete bottom, but...

I bought this very nice compressor 2nd hand a couple of years ago, and I just noticed that the water trap is almost to the top.

How do I empty it? I could just take a spanner and screwdriver to it, but I want to be sure exactly what to do before tackling it - I don't want to break it.

the bottom of the moisture trap is a one way valve should empty by just pushing up the spring loaded pin on the bottom of the trap whilst a little pressure is in it if it does't come out whilst not under pressure
