Hi I'm James with JNC Home Repair and today I'm going to show you how to repair a shower valve. We have already removed the shower valve out of a tub and basically you need the right repair kit for the type of valve that you have. Usually on the handles or somewhere on the cover on the trim plate it will show you what kind of faucet you have. You need to make sure that the repair kit coincides with the type of faucet that you have. This is a stem type faucet right here. Basically there are three things that you need to change in this thing. You are going to need a Philip's Head Screwdriver and you are going to need to remove this Philip's Head Screw right here and all it is is once you remove that screw it is just a little rubber washer. The old rubber washer comes out and you just put the new one in. The second one is this little rubber washer right here you can see. You just get a little flathead screwdriver right here and it will just pop right off. Once you get that thing off there you put your new washer in place and the last one is you are going to need a crescent wrench to remove this. I've got it hand tight right now but you'll need a crescent wrench to remove this little sleeve right here. You pull that out and if you look down inside there you can unscrew this thing just like so, open your valve, pull this thing off and you can actually get into this rubber washer right here. That thing, you just pull it out just like so and it is out and you go right back in with the new washer, plug your valve right back in, screw this in and that is how you rebuild a shower valve.
