Can someone give me a heads-up and/or link to more info on a DIY repair.
I've got a combo tub/shower with a common three-handle arrangement, the

My shower is tiled, and there's no easy access to the back side of the
plumbing; the other side of the wall is in a closet, covered with
drywall. I'm hoping to get some knowledge before attacking this. Is this
a reasonable DIY repair? Simple like a washer, or hard like replacing the
entire valve assembly? Will I find repair parts in the big box or
hardware store? Can it be done from the front? If not, maybe by breaking
though the drywall on the other side of the wall? Is this going to lead
to a bathroom remodel?
