Honwave valve advice

Got a little bit 'enthusiastic' when trying to turn the yellow bit on the valve on the inflatable keel of my new honwave. Stupidly I resorted to a pair of pliers which resulted in the yellow bit becoming squashed. It still works but I am wondering if this part is easily replaced or if the whole valve would need replacing - in which case perhaps I should leave it 'as is'? Advice would be greatly appreciated.

Is the keel still holding air pressure?

Are you still able to pump air through the valve?

Yes it is still working - both holding pressure and can pump air, it just looks a bit mangled. I am concerned that it lets me down when we head for South Devon in a couple of weeks. If its easy to replace I thought I would do it now rather than have it let we down later.
