Gerber Repair In this image you see the stem with out the handle or trim. you will also notice there is not enough room for the stem tool to fit. you would need to remove a little sheetrock or tile if you have this problem. Also note there is no tile or other water proof materials protecting the sheet rock, if this is not corrected the wall will fall apart in just a few weeks.
Gerber faucet stem Don't be frightened by the above image, It is not necessary to open the wall to repair this faucet. In this particular instants, the main body was too far into the wall and needed to be pulled forward. normally all of the work shown can be done with out removing any tile or opening the wall.
