Hello. I am running into a problem with my tub spout from a tub / shower combo. The faucet is a Delta if that matters. Unfortunately I do not have any of the paperwork from the install to determine a model name or number.

This tub spout has the pull up / push down type of diverter at the far end. It is sticking and very difficult to move, so I believe I need to replace the spout.

The spout appears to be a slip on with a set screw. Normally this should be really easy to remove, but it appears the set screw is about 60 degrees rotated from the slot in the bottom of the spout. I can see the side of the screw head through the slot, but there's no way to get a screwdriver to engage the screw head in order to loosen the screw. The screw is too far into the spout to reach the head with a needle nose pliers. Additionally, I can rotate / spin the spout on the copper pipe coming out of the wall but cannot slide it off the pipe.

Attached is a phone picture through the slot of the spout showing the side of the screw head.

Question is, what can I do to remove the spout if I cannot get a screwdriver into the set screw head? No idea what to try.

Thanks.

why don't you turn the spout until it lines up with the set screw, if the pipe is turning just unscrew the whole assembley.
I can spin the spout all around the pipe, but the set screw spins with the spout in the same position relative to the slot in the spout. I can't spin the spout to line the slot up with the set screw.

The pipe is not turning with the spout.
