Default Can these be replaced?

My first keg was brand new. Just got four used ones in today from CHI. The pressure relief valve on two of them are plastic, look very cheap, and are cracked. I'm wondering if they can and/or need to be replaced. Also, is there a way to unscrew the valve inside to clean it out?

I'm considering just replacing the lids with the type I'm used to:

That way all my kegs have the same lid type and valve type. I dunno, I just don't like plastic.
