It looks like one of the washers on our two handle tub faucet has failed - closing the faucet only shuts off about 90% of the water volume.
I have some replacement washers already.
I got the escutcheon off with no issue.
However, there appears to be one more 1 1/2" nut holding the spindle in, and I can’t get enough grip/leverage on it with my wrenches or pliers to remove it due to the depth below the surface of the tile. My 10" adjustable wrench appears to have walked out, and my slip joint pliers are all too big to get a grip on the flat side of the nut given the size of the opening in the tile.
Before I run to the hardware store to find a wrench that will let me take it off… can anybody confirm that I’m not missing something obvious here? Should I be trying to get this spindle out some other way?
