Thread: Removing Shower Diverter Seat

  1. #1

    Default Removing Shower Diverter Seat

    I attempted to remove a square drive diverter seat with a stepped
    seat removal tool and the end broke off inside the seat.

    I thought I had inserted it up to the correct size (one size too small) and twisted it off.

    The end of the removal tool is stuck inside the seat.

    Any ideas on how to remove? I tried drilling but the metal appears
    to hard. Maybe a special drill bit?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hardened steel?
    This does not sound easy.
    It might be time for a new valve.
