Tub Spout Removal


I am replacing the tub spout/shower diverter and can't figure out how to remove the plastic piece from the copper pipe. Any help is appreciated.

thanks.

Re: Tub Spout Removal


An unusual tub spout.
Obviously you have remove the screw that holds everything in place.
Things now are probably just stuck.
First try tapping down on the metal insert. The screw you remove probably pressed against the pipe and pulled the metal bracket against the pipe. Tap and try twisting the PVC .

Re: Tub Spout Removal


The metal insert moves freely and the PVC spins freely, but will not budge along the pipe even using a pry bar.
