      Hi,

      I am trying to fix a single handle price pfister tub faucet, which is leaking.

      I figured that the stem needs to be replaced, so I removed the handle and face plate which then exposed the plastic stem.
      i also removed the sleeve nut that keeps the stem in place.

      i tried several times pulling the stem using a pair of pliers with out any success.

      i am not sure if there is anything else that is holding the stem or is it lime build up and corroision that is causing the problem.

      i am afraid if I pull too hard I may damage something that will be more expensive to fix.

      any advice is welcome. thank you.
      this faucet is about 12 years old.
