in this video clip we will be removing our stem seat. Inside of our faucet we have here on the right our stem on the left we have our seat. Located in there our seat is sticking in there our stem comes up to our seat and keeps that water from flowing. What we need to do right now is remove the old seat. If we take a look in our faucet that seat has that kind of square appearance, this is the piece that we're going to need to remove. The tool that we're going to use for this job is a tapered faucet seat wrench. Now there's two different ends on it for different size seats. The way this works is that we put our seat wrench in and grip our seats and we go ahead and loosen up that seat and pull it out.
