How do i remove this shower valve stem? It looks different from others i have seen in DIY videos.
This is a very old house.
Shower/Tub is downstairs.
Water has been turned off and pressure relieved.
My initial thoughts are:
Is there a "sheath" on the shower valve - why is it so fat?
I do not see anything exposed that a valve wrench could grasp
I've removed the shower valve sheath thing. What am I looking at here?
Should I remove this plastic piece or leave it on and find something that fits it?
