U 1st have to remove the 2 screws that hold the overflow plate onto the tub. Check to see if there is a cotter pin connecting the mechanism. Pull the entire brass rod assembly out and see if there is any corrosion (soap scum, hair clog ,etc.) There is a brass stopper attached to the bottom of the rod. Try re-inserting and adjusting. It may be something simple like the trip lever not going up and down to make the plunger seal. If this fails and you get totally frustrated, they make a tub stopper called a "Tip Toe". You have to have a threaded tap in the tub strainer to screw the tip toe into the cross piece of the strainer. Then simply purchase a blank overflow plate (less trip lever) and re-install with the 2 slotted screws.
