    I have a 20-year-old American Faucet Bathroom faucet. I am trying to change the valve cartridge. The first obstacle was the handle was seized to I had to drill the screw out (I hope I can find a replacement). The second obstacle, for the life of me I cannot remove the faucet trim. Looking at online videos from American Standard it looks like the piece would simply pull off when you removed the handle. I cannot pull this piece up nor can I unscrew it from the base trim (refer to attached photos). FOr the life of me what is the trick of disassembling this?[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sometimes you need a handle puller, or rock it a bit and pull harder. Not always easy.
