Hi! I can't seem to figure out how to remove by tub faucet. I don't see a set screw on the underside, and it doesn't twist at all. I of course don't want to pull too hard, but if I pull the faucet towards me, the pipe in the wall seems to come with it. Seems like it must be screwed, but I don't see the screw at all.

It should unscrew counter clockwise.

They can get frozen onto the copper pipe.

If you twist too hard, you’ll twist the copper off in the wall.

I cut them off with an oscillating tool.
