Question Stuck Brake Bleeder Valve

I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong area.
Instead of using heat, would dry ice work to
loosen a bleeder valve /screw in the caliper?
I thought about using the air in the can that is
used to clean dirt, dust, etc, from around keyboard keys.
However, the air in the can may not be cold enough.
Thinking the small piece of dry ice would shrink
the bleeder screw/valve threads separating them
from the caliper threads.
I would get the dry ice from
a place a fish market or someplace similar.

Try acetone and transmission fluid. Works great on rusty hardware. Or for $19.00 take the old one off and replace with a reman from A.Z, C269 passenger or C268 for drivers side.
