break down and call a plumber before you create n impossible situation. You might also explain what you mean by "replace them" since that may not be possible.

: We have a 55-year old tub faucet (spigot) & handles we are trying to remove to replace them, and having no luck. Faucet will not budge after trying the hammer-end-in-the-opening-as-leverage technique to twist it off. There are no screws or other means of attachment visible. With the handles, the screws are cemented in there by rust & various accumulated build-up and are almost stripped. Will a handle puller work if the screws are still in there? Am so frustrated feel like attacking it with the hammer, but am trying not to ruin the tile! This is holding up the rest of our project. Please help! Thanks.
