mixet valve removal
Posted by Daniel on May 26, 2003 at 14:35:01:
Due to hard water (I guess) it has been very difficult to dismantle my old Mixet shower valve. I finally got the knob and handle off, but I CANNOT get the stem retainer nut to budge. I'm afraid I'm going to deform it so much that no tool will grab it, Any advice? By the way, the chrome sleeve around the nut will turn, but not the nut itself.

Just to make double sure...the retainer nut should loosen counter clockwise, correct?

MANY thanks for your help on a holiday weekend.
