Large bathtub spout gap fix

Hi All,

A couple of days ago, I noticed a fairly large gap between the bathtub spout and the wall. See attached picture.

What could have caused it? A few weeks ago, I did increase the hot water temp since winter is coming, but I also did that last year.

So I wonder what could have caused it, and I believe the fix would be to cut that portion of the pipe?

Re: Large bathtub spout gap fix

Adjusting the water temp likely had no influence on your divirter pulling out.
Look underneath it you might see a slot and a set screw that holds the spout in place.
Loosen, push back in place, retighten set screw.
