Anyway, please see the pic and let me know how to open this thing.
Just like any garden hose spigot. Tighty righty and lefty loosey
Look close and you'll see an arrow in the white plastic molding.
Of Note: turn the heat down and the inlet water off before you start.
Also... plan to REMOVE that utter garbage factory valve and replace it with
a "full port" ball valve so the crud can pass more easily. A few other fittings (nipples, GH adaptor, etc) will come in handy when you do that job.
