I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing, here to show you how to repair a push/pull shower faucet. When repairing a push pull shower faucet which means you pull out, turn on right and left for hot and cold. The first thing you want to do is remove your index button, remove the handle screw and you'll want to do this before you go down and pick up parts so you make sure you get the right parts. Now this particular one has a sleeve and a small clip that holds the cartridge in. Once you remove those, pull your cartridge out. Now this one sometimes it will be real tricky to get out. You'll need a specialized tool to remove this. Once you've matched it up, you've got your new one, we'll just work here in reverse, put the cartridge in, make sure it's all the way in, take your clip or locknut, whichever was holding the cartridge in in the first place, put that back in there, make sure it's all the way in, reinstall your sleeve or escutcheon tube, reinstall your handle, go ahead and tighten it up, put your button back on. You're now ready to turn the water back on to your home. Make sure your hot and cold is in the right position.
