Had a quick question regarding replacement of bathtub faucets. It's an older bathtub (1950's) and the faucets are very difficult to get shut off and sometimes the hot water will leak/drip through the spout.
Does anyone know how to remove these old fixtures? I've tried removing the Phillips screw head from the handle but it refuses to come off. Since this is the first time I've ever had to replace faucets, I'm not having much luck. Can someone point me in the right direction as to how these come off? Do they just pop off? Screw off? Are they just corroded so bad they're glued on? Do I need to access the back of the bathtub to get them off?
I've attached the photo which is from my cell phone. Please let me know if this photo doesn't help and I'll try to take others.
Thanks in advance!
