Tap cartridge for bath tap dripping but unable to remove

Postby GarySeaman80 » Sat Jun 26, 2021 7:06 am

Hi guys, been trying to figure this out for a little while but completely stuck. I have a dripping bath tap and tried to remove the cartridge however the nut has rounded and is now completely stuck.
Issue is access as its behind a tiled wall so very difficult to get any grip on it now (see pic) Any ideas of tools or a way to remove that might be successful?

Simply Build It

Hi garyseaman80
Can only suggest you try a long 6 flat socket or a box spanner.
