Hi,

Was wondering whether anyone had adive on how to remove this diverter valve? The nut at the end looks like the only thing I can get a purchase on but I would value some more expert advice before I start putting on my weight on the end of a spanner to try & get it to move.

Cheers

I think for that one you'll need the correct C spanner, Craig.
Give the area a clean with a wire brush to see better.
I presume the hexagon that you see only seals the stem of the valve.

you need a C spanner that slots into these grooves, you may be able to chap it around using a screwdriver and a hammer but better if you can get the correct tool

Thanks all, now it makes some sense. Reckon I'll buy a c spanner to give myself the best chance.

Cheers
