Hello, my faucet has been leaking for a while now and my assumption is that it just needs a new cartridge. My problem is that I can't find any screws/plugs on it and I haven't been able to find a way to remove anything on it. I've tried searching for answers but all I can find are ways to remove ones that have screws. Any help would be much appreciated, I'll have an image attached below:

Your valve is Gerber 49-300 and has a Tempress 2 cartridge. Gerber has a terrible part sheet for this valve. You need to remove the chrome index button on the handle and this will expose the handle screw. This is not a standard size screw so be careful. Then you will see the escutcheon screws once the handle is removed. Search "1786-9000 Tempress ll (T2) Shower Valve Cartridge" for a factory replacement cartridge. Do not use reproductions.

Thank you so much! I didn't expect to get an answer so soon, I was able to remove the index button thanks to you.
One last question if you don't mind, is this the exact cartridge I need?
