Likewise, people ask, how do you fix a broken bathtub faucet?

Replacing a slip-on spout is easy: Just loosen the setscrew (usually with a hex wrench) and pull the spout off the copper pipe that protrudes from the wall. Twist the spout as you pull and be gentle so you don't loosen any pipe connections inside the wall. Then slide on the new spout and tighten the setscrew.

Can you replace shower handle without replacing valve?

The handle and trim for the tub/shower controls can also usually be replaced without redoing any plumbing by using a universal replacement kit (available for most brands at home centers and plumbing supply stores). Tub spouts (faucets) unscrew (Photo 2), or pull off if they have a setscrew underneath.
