I cannot seem to figure out how to take this shower knob apart...


Can anyone guide me to a set screw or something?
My child slipped and grabbed this knob and twisted it around, so now it miraculously turns on backwards... Yeah, I used to turn it counter clockwise to turn it on and now its clockwise... LOL
I know it is a timebomb waiting to leak now, so I'm going to replace the cartridge if possible.

There are NO visible set screws, and nothing I can find to take apart to get to one...

I did, but I cannot seem to find it on their website at all.
there is no model number anywhere on the knob, so I've got nothing to reference in a search other than "delta shower knob"

Figured it out.
The stupid end cap pops off...
I feel like a dunce, but it did seem well attached until I attacked it with a small flathead screwdriver.

Picture attached so anyone else can reference.

For future reference, looks like you have a Delta Monitor 1700 series.
