My question is a plumbing question but the confirmation says I am matched with an electrician.

Hi my name is ***** ***** I have been in the plumbing repair field for 20 years. I will be glad to help you today. To remove the diverter in the spout, pull the diverter button up and hold the diverter post and unscrew the button from the end of the post then the diverter and post will come out from underneath.

Is the plastic piece the diverter post?
Expert:  canuck the pro replied 9 months ago.

No, the thing you pull up to divert the water is the button and the post. Two pieces. You might need a pair of channel lock pliers to hold the post part and the button on the end of it screws off. You were turning the whole thing before but the button screws off then everything comes out underneath.....drops out.

Expert:  canuck the pro replied 9 months ago.

Hold the part that goes through the hole and and the knob screws off.

I will try that so I'll wait to rate you until I see if your instructions work. Fair?
