    Hi All
    My Baxi Main 24 HE diverter valve is leaking at the front, just behind the micro switch.
    Please see attached photo. My question is can I replace the seal, if there is one, and is it a simple job?
    Thanks in advance

    Chris and Ian
    Thank you for your help and the links. Probably a silly question, do I need to drain the system before dismantling the valve?

    No just isolate the cold water inlet valve below the boiler and leave the lowest HW tap open, when the water stops running you can unscrew the gland
