I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing, here to show you how to repair a leaking shower faucet. First thing you want to make sure of when repairing a shower or a tub faucet, make sure your water's turned off. Remove the shower handle. This particular one uses an Allen wrench set screw to remove the handle. Now, this particular valve, we don't have to remove the plate. We're able to repair without removing the plate. You may need a crescent wrench, or a pair of pliers. Remove the lock nut which holds your cartridge in. At this point, your cartridge should be able to pull out. Now, you'll want to take that cartridge down to your supply house, match it up so you get the right one. Once you have the right one, slide you back into place, reverse order. Put your lock nut back on, trim back on, and replace your handle. Tighten it up, and you've now repaired your shower faucet. And again, I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing.
