Supplies:

I also recommend using a bath rug/towel – (something soft underneath in case the shower handle falls off) while working.

And yes – you’ll notice that I did NOT clean my shower ahead of time – haha!  So these pics are not as clear as they should be 😉

Ok, carry on!

4 Easy Steps

Step 1)  Loosen Small Screws On Handle

The first thing you will do is use your Allen Wrench tool and loosen the small screws on the INSIDE handle.

  • I had to use both of the tools because my honey might have overtightened them when trying to fix this 😉
  • But you might just need one of these tools.
  • Mine was the 2nd smallest – just a fyi.

Here are some pictures so you can see what these screws look like:

  • in = tightened
  • out = loosened

To loosen – turn LEFT.

You might have to play around with the Allen wrench – until it “fits” just right into the screw.  Just don’t turn too aggressively – so that you don’t strip the screw.

My handle had 4 small screws, and you will loosen all 4 of them.

Step 2)  Remove Inside Shower Handle

Now you will remove the inside shower handle – carefully.

  • FYI – the 4 small screws will remain in the handle.

Step 3)  Tighten Large Screws W/ Screwdriver

Then you will take your Phillips Screwdriver and tighten both of those 2 larger screws.

To tighten – turn RIGHT.

You will also want to make sure that the outside handle is straight at this point – while you are tightening it.
