    Default Shower diverter

    I have a tub faucet with a built-in shower diverter that's leaking. I've read the thread about removing the entire faucet and taking it in to buy a replacement, but my problem is that I can't get it off! There's no screw holding it in place, but when I try to twist it off, it's stuck fast, as if it's glued. I'm worried about tearing the entire pipe out of the wall. Is there anything I can use to loosen the thread?

    Thanks!

    Problem solved, thanks. Just took a bit more muscle than I'd been exerting.

    Default Re: Shower diverter -- removing it

    Guys. . . I won't fire you or cut your pay.

    Steve: I always had a fear about removing an old spout (diverter not working) and damaging the threaded pipe/nib, so sympathize with you.

    Now guys, can you confirm the spout comes off counter-clockwise ??

    Thanks.
