Problem with the diverter on a bath mixer shower tap.

It is a 15 or 20 year old gold finished tap set that has a plated cover that can be removed once the tap heads (white plastic), hose connector and diverter pullup knob are removed.

This exposes the pull up spindle for the diverter which moves within a threaded portion about 20 mm high and which has two flats on it. This looks as if it should screw out of the tap body but has resisted all my efforts.

Has anybody any knowledge of such a tap type. I cannot believe that the diverter has to be accessed from the bottom which would mean removal of the tap assembly from the bath.

Sorry no photos available at this time
