    Trying to remove shower thermostatic cartridge - help please

    OK thanks. Yes, I've shown the photo to showerdoc and they said to remove the chrome plate and try to get a spanner on the two slots on the front of the cartridge as this one looks like its screwed in to the body. When I said that I didn't think removing the plate would help, they said if I...

    Trying to remove shower thermostatic cartridge - help please

    I really don't want to have to replace the shower as it's part of a steam cabinet, and whilst it's accessible as the cabinet can be moved away from the wall, I suspect I'll struggle to find a shower to replace it.

    Trying to remove shower thermostatic cartridge - help please

    The boiler is a Baxi Combi 105e. Since I've been trying to remove the cartridge, the last couple of times I've turned on the shower (without first turning on the hot tap to get the water hot) the boiler has tripped out with a hot water temperature fault light, and I've had to switch it off and...

    Trying to remove shower thermostatic cartridge - help please

    OK thanks jeff the gasman. Do you mean the chrome surround? If so, wouldn't this still leave the flats of the cartridge inside the housing so not sure how I'd get a spanner on them. Could you suggest how to do this please. I've tried by hand (anti-clockwise) but it won't shift.
