Does anyone know how to remove these type of shower handles? I think they are 90's era PricePfister. I've been staring at the for weeks and have no idea. The screw underneath seems to lock in the escutcheon, but i don't see a sign of a cap and haven't been able to pull the knob off so I assume there's a trick to it. Thanks for any help!
If those little end cover caps were removed a screw may become visible to take out so the knob can be removed. I usually use my sharp pocket knife to pry them off. I know, I shouldn't treat my knife that way.
A cap seems most likely. If not, see if the gold part on the end unthreads. Otherwise it's possible that the whole handle threads off to the left, but don't try too hard or you risk damage to the valve.
