If the nut was greased upon installation, you wouldn't have that problem.

I greased the new one. The guy who installed it is in his eighties now. I will give him a pass!

I avoided twisting mine off. Changing the shower valve isn't the sucky part, repairing the drywall is!

I love it when a customer calls and tells me they have twisted off the cartridge and they want a price to repair it.......

They just cannot accept the fact that they need a new faucet and are unwilling to take me at my word when I give them the price for a new one.

I have had a few get downright rude to me and I tell them how sorry I am and that I only do this for a living... Then I tell them to call Ben for the best price in town. .

About 5" access through the front of fiberglass surround.... or plenty room to work on drywalled side. I rebuilt from front side of course. PITA to change entire valve from front side.
