I'm trying to replace the faucet stems in my bathroom shower but have a problem. The 'nut' part is stuck inside the water connection. This makes replacing both parts pretty hard. So I'm trying to replace just the stem, but again without both parts of the faucet stem it's almost impossible to figure out which faucet stem to purhcase.

Anybody know how to remove the 'nut' part from inside the hot and cold water connections? I tried putting the stem back in and turning the stem in hopes of then turning the 'nut' or stem housing but that didn't work.

Thanks.

John

The outermost nut 'keeps" the packing......the next hex nut releases the stem......you need a DEEP socket wrench....here's a typical/diagram link:

The stem then turns out using the regular handle replaced on the stem......
