    I've looked through many of the posts trying to find a shower stem like mine - don't see one. I have a 2 knob shower leaking cold water. Removed the knobs, but could not see how to proceed.
    No name visible on knobs - vaguely remember Delta. Bathroom built in early 90's. Anyone recognize this stem?

    Unscrew or split the brass bonet to remove stem then take another pic

    Thanks for reply. I guess I should have emphasized "couldn't see how to proceed" part of my post. I have done a fair amount of wrenching, but nothing here looks like something to get a tool on. How would this brass bonnet come apart?

    More then likely you will have to split it. Takeva hack saw blabe and saw to threads the split with a screw driver. The bonet is the brass ring that holds the cartridge in the valve
