Faucet without set screws


I have a bath/shower faucet without any set screws, caps, etc. The hot water valve is bad and needs to be fixed, but I can't figure out how to get the handles off. I am a mechanical engineer and usually have no problems with DIY projects, but this is stumping me.

Look for a set screw on the handle. Usually an allen head

They may be pressed on. See if it will just pull off by rocking back and forth or wrap some duct tape around it and try a pair of channel locks. Careful not to damage/scratch them. Just a suggestion.

As mentioned above, try googling "removing grohe or hansgrohe handles" or contact the manufacturer directly. There's gotta be a way. Hope you can get them off without damaging or scratching them.

I'm sure a plumber has face this situation before and found a solution. Please wait for them to respond. Thanks.
