Tub - Faucet Replacement Question


My tub has a separate faucet and handles, similar to this picture: http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS/EN_US/diy_main/pg_diy.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1491892776.1172432749@@@@&BV_EngineIDgeaddkfgmjgdgcgelceffdfgidgll.0&CNTTYPE=PROD_META&N)84+9060&MID76&CNTKEY=misc%2fsearchResults.jsp&pos=n08&orig_ref=http%3a%2f%2fwww.homedepot.com%2fprel80%2fHDUS%2fEN_US%2fpg_index.jsp%3fCNTTYPE%3dNAVIGATION%26CNTKEY%3dpg_index.jsp%26m%3d1172396045390
The tub faucet is no longer diverting water to the shower because the pull-up stopper has broken off. I want to replace this broken faucet with a new one. Couple of questions: 1. How do I remove the existing tub faucet? I'm guessing just wrench the facuet off? 2. How do I remove the existing water control handles?
Thanks! Leo

That link doesn't make clear what model you have.
Is the pull-up in the tub spout? If so, you can replace just the spout. Some spouts screw on to a threaded pipe, others slip on (no threads).

The part "sessionID" in the url above is, I think, a clue that this will not work if you are not in the middle of your particular session. For the rest of us it redirects, I think, to a page named

OK, so that is character for character the same thing. 8~) Despite that, I think the rest of what I said is right. It probably won't even work for you again.
