We are trying to replace a bar faucet that was an expensive unit but 20 years old.
All the videos we watched showed a fairly simple screw to unscrew and the faucet would come right out. With this faucet, if you look at the screw and the two plates above the threaded part, nothing moves and we can't get any traction at all.
The actual faucet can twirl somewhat on the tile, but nothing actually moves below. The threaded part isn't part of any screw or nut and the threaded part isn't threaded all the way around, it has notches in the threaded area. It would seem like those plates might be the working part but I can't make them move either.
What tool to use because nothing is working.
Any thoughts on what we are dealing with and how to remove it?
